Miss Lydia, they are wonderful additions to a chicken flock. I was turned onto them by a fellow member here that lives not too far away when I asked for help adding a duck or two. I didn't know one duck from another and she suggested the Muscovy. She then in turn sent me to a lady near me who breeds them. Little did I know that there is an entire network of Muscovy ladies.....everywhere. Now that I have them, I can see why. For anyone reading this thread and interested in these great birds, hit up your local state thread. Ask for a little local help. It won't take long........ Ooops~! another Muscovy picture, how that that get in here....oh, one more thing, they love to pose for pictures.
