    Muscovy on the upper left is the father to the mule duck on the lower right.
    This muscovy is also the father to the rest of the pictured offspring.
    The last picture way on the bottom is of the pair these mule ducks came from.
    Mule duck is a female.

    The above five mule ducks came from the black muscovy drake and the fawn runner duck female.

    The females all laid eggs and the males bred actively but we never tried hatching any of the eggs. We no longer have any of these ducks. We really enjoyed them while we had them though.

    It seems like scovy x pekins would make good meat ducks. If you kept separate flocks of each and just let them together for a few weeks you could maintain fertile flocks of both, plus they hybrids, no? I might try this with my 2 pekin girls.

    I locked down my first hatch of the year earlier today. There's peeping in one of the marans eggs! I'm excited! And I set 2 dozen Ameraucanas, 6 or 7 olive eggers, 25 Marans and 4 salmon Faverolles.

    My local TSC didn't have the grab-bag bantams. So I went with 5 white rocks, and a black jersey giant! Can always put them in the egg flock!

    Xs 2!!!!

    No snow here yet, school has not been called off, I just love it when they have us send the kids in, only to have them come right back. Seriously, what's the thinking there? The road to my house from the school is single lane, winds a LOT, is on the North side of a hill and overhangs the Brandywine. I don't like driving on it in a car, I certainly don't want my kid on the bus going that way.

    I KNEW we should have gotten them swimming lessons.

    HA! Everything 50 mins or more south from us is closed (Altoona and farther). But we aren't even delayed. This should be a fun storm to watch.
