    Muscovies dont quack, they make a hissing noise.

    Much quieter than your normal duck.

    It's really funny because Muscovies are the biggest ducks I've seen, and yet they don't make a sound. Just a hushed hissing and series of squeaks.
    And yet, the smallest ducks, Calls, are SO LOUD. We live in a valley of sorts and their quacks echo [​IMG] But their cuteness makes up for it, LOL.
    But yeah, the lady I got my muscovies from, lived in city limits where she technically wasn't supposed to have them. But no one knew [​IMG]

    I just got my first girls today. While they don't make a traditional quacking noise, they do honk when they are stressed. It sounds similar to a goose but much quieter. My drakes are REALLY quiet. All they do is huff.

    I heard they were quiet.. not quackless!

    I love my khakis! The drake is awesome. He still gives me the eye though when I look at his girls!

    muscovies are very quiet.They also fly really well and i mean like ..up onto your roof or perchhing up in a tree type flying...unless you clip a wing. And they are SUPER SWEET too as a rule.
