    Hello everyone, new member here. I have been raising 4 muscovies for a while, but their mom died today (I believe it may have been egg-clumping, although she was laying just fine yesterday...), and I've been extremely upset since. She was my first pet duck, and I've had her around since she was just a baby duckling. None of my other pets are anywhere near as sweet and trusting as she was...

    Anyway, I'm joining here because I want to have a reliable place for info on raising ducks (My girl is gone, but her babies have a good long life) and also someplace where I can buy ducks. 2/4 of my current ducks are male (I'm giving the mega-sized one away), so I've been trying to get another girl for them.
