I'm actually pretty new to ducks in general. I hatched a Welsh Harlequin duckling a few months ago and she has been raised with chicks because there weren't any local ducklings her age. A few weeks ago I bought some scovies: choc pied, black pied, and barred? hopefully all are ducks. If all are ducks then I'm going to add a choc pied drake to them and be finished buying adult ducks. Questions: - When are muscovies "mature"(laying, breeding)? - I've heard they won't cross breed with the WH because they prefer their own....something about being in the goose family? - Is there a color genetics chart somewhere so I can figure out WHAT color the barred? looking one it and what I might get out of the breedings next year?? THANKS!!
