I never said Muscovys aren't poultry??? I was saying they aren't ducks. A lot of people I know think rabbits are poultry so I would say yes all of those are poultry.
Muscovys should have their own option and not just lumped in with ducks. So they would be an "other" kind of poultry.
I didn't say you said that.....just pointing out another anomaly in the poll.

The newest member of our flock, a baby cockatiel who was hatched in my incubator. There's another in the process of hatching. Our cockatiels were ready to breed but I did not have boxes ready (I did want them to be slightly older before I bred them). So they'd lay eggs on the aviary floor which would then get broken. They are now set up with boxes but the eggs I saved went in the incubator.

We also have Society finches, a pair of Bourkes parakeets, 2 female ringneck doves, Coturnix quail, chickens and Muscovy ducks. Our newest Muscovy is 6 weeks old and being raised by one of our dedicated OEGB hens who's been very accepting of her strange baby who likes to play in the water bowl and is now larger than she is.
