Too Big of a male?

Discussion in 'Ducks' started by lowcountrypoultry, Jan 30, 2008.

  1. I recently sold most of my muscovy males to a older man who gave me a free all black beautiful muscovy male. The two females that remain are smaller, but are in breeding age and have already laid their first clutch [which I gathered because of their size]. I have not seen them breed, and the male is BIG, the biggest male I've ever seen. Do you think they'll breed? Any or at all?

    And if they do will he hurt my females?

    Thank You.

    I read this, but couldn't think of a reply that was 'family friendly'.

    Muscovy males are pretty big compared to the females, sometimes twice as big. They will be fine, no worries.
