    They kind of look like Muscovies to me! The blue billed yellow ones are barred, I believe. If they start coming in barred, I say they are Scovies because Im pretty sure Scovies are the only ducks that can be barred! Domestics anyways.

    No!!! We hate Muscovy ducks!!! We'll have to sell them! You don't know how hard I've tried to gentle them, and all the poop scrapping is for nothing![​IMG] [​IMG]

    Gervais: We thought that one with the pink bill might be a pekin or a runner but we weren't sure. Is it going to be a hen of a drake or can you tell?

    I love scovies, and if they're barred I would take them in a heart beat!

    Those blue beaked and black tipped tailed ones are most definitly barred muscovies!

    Gosh I wish I was you right now, I love scovies, esspecially the barred ones(hoping to hatch more from my pair this year, eggs should hatch next week!).
    Although nothing can beat Rippled Muscovies.
