    Does anyone know of any breeders who raise Show Quality Muscovy ducks who ship day olds or hatching eggs? I haven't had much luck locating any one who keeps their scovies sperated by color.

    I breed and raise muscovy and do show them but not all are show standard colors.
    I have blue pieds, chocolate barreds (some bibbed, some pied), black pied, black barred, lavender barred pieds, and blue fawn bibbed.

    I breed for size as well as temperament, broodiness, foraging ability, and try to breed to show standards (minus the colors)

    I ship day olds as well as juvies and adults

    Learycow,
    Do you have any pictures of the lavenders and the chocolates and blue pieds? Do you keep them separated by color?

    This is my chocolate barred trio. Pic was taken in the fall when they were roughly 6 months old. They are darker now with the only barring showing on their bellies and under the wings.
    The lavender barred/pied is in the back. Sorry, I need to take some more recent pics!

    Black barred hen (mated with the lavender/pied barred drake). This clutch hatched late fall. ALL ducklings were barred. I had about 7 black, 3 lavender, and 2 silver.

    These are the same barred ducklings as pictured above. Left to right: silver, silver, lavender, black, lavender, black

    Hope that helps a little. I will try to get some updated pics of everybody, LOL
