Only the male is crested,will all babies be crested?
I wouldn't think all would be but some probably will get the crested gene passed down.
What is the rule of thumb ratio of male to female,my friend has 1 to 12 with Muscovys
well one to 12 can be unhealthy since eventually all the babies ( if he keeps them) could be inbred.
For one male it is ideal to have two to three females. but some males do just fine with one female and partner up instead of having a group
for muscovys though ( in my experience ) they do better with about 4 to 3 females in one group for him individually.
Can you start with different ducks or is it best to stay with the same breeds?
Mallard derived it doesnt matter,for muscovys it has to be muscovys for babies that are fertile.
Took the little ones out in the yard today. They were all very happy and the kids and dogs all were very well behaved they have already grown like crazy!
Oh my gosh! Adorable! Are they runners?
I love all the pictures on this thread. I can't wait to be able to get ducks!
I will give you fair warning right now.... They're AWESOME!!!!
Enjoying the rain and puddles
