    hi all, thought i'd share some pictures of some interesting young silver looking muscovy. they are around 7 weeks old. i was pretty sure that they were silver barred split for bronze. i'm not 100% sure now, they have a lot of orange barring on them, more so than usual, its most likely the wild type colouring coming through but i thought it wouldn't hurt to get some more opinions:D

    the first 4 are of the same girl

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] My opinion is that they are really gorgeous! Wow, you know thats whats great about muscovies - the color possibilities seem almost endless. They are like a box of chocolates, you never know what your are going to get! Sorry I have no info to offer, but if you sell hatching eggs, I would love to buy some from you someday.

    wow! they are beautiful, I wouldn't know what to tell you about what color label they would fall under other than the gourgeous one! [​IMG] Mine where similar to that except the barring was a darker chocolate colour but as the time went by the barring began to fade away and now its berly visible on there underbody/vent area... But maybe since yours are lighter the color will stick around, they are astonishing though! [​IMG]

    Love them! Totally gorgeous but I, too, am clueless about what color they are.
    I love them enough to hope you will sell eggs next year!
