    I've been checking out your website for sometime now, I enjoy it a lot. There's a lot of good information for newbies like myself [​IMG]!!

    I got 3 ducks from a local farmer about 3 weeks ago.. He said that they were muscovy mixes.. So i guess he means their hinnies or mule ducks.. The Black & White is very tiny, (s)he is about half the size of the others. One of the white ones is considerably bigger than the other white one..

    They look like muscovy ducks to me [​IMG]
    I personally don't know how to tell if they are mules or not. I have heard that even the mule muscovies look like muscovy. I'm sure there are certian features you can look for, but I just don't know them.

    Thanks [​IMG], I enjoy having them... We had little trouble with the biggest white 1.. The others kept picking on Her/Him. I would look out and (s)he would have blood next to her wings. I would get the bleeding to spot and put flour on it and they would eat the flour off of her. So we've separated them for a couple of days. Hopefully by tomorrow we can reunite them again and they'll be the best of friends..

    Do you think their pure muscovies?
