    I want some Muscovies, but I want them sexed.

    If you want muscovy ducklings then it's impossible to sex them without hurting them.
    Buy adult muscovies they're pretty easy to disguinish when it comes to gender. The male has this large lobe on his face which is red, he also has a crest, hes bigger and makes a hiss sound. The female is smaller than the male, with a smaller red lobe, has no crest, and doesn't hiss.

    Well where do they sell adult Muscovies. I need certain amounts of males and females. I am starting to save some money for a big coop renovation and adding a bunch of birds. I'm planning to have 55 chickens (50 hens, 5 roos), 30 ducks (24 ducks, 6 drakes), and 12 geese (pairs of Toulouse, African, Buff, Sebastopol, and 4 straight run Canada Geese).

    Wow your getting into this big time, only thing I know is check on BYC sell thread and Craigslist and other places like feed stores that may have for sale bulletin boards, word of mouth? [asking around.] also your state thread you may run across a Scovy breeder.

    Well, despite being a very farm friendly state, there is not much for any kind of duck breeders in ND. I've been scanning craiglist for months looking for Scovies and Canada Geese. I just went on Dallas's craiglist page, and it would be awesome if I was down there. There are great deals for Muscovies there. Maybe in 6-8 years, when I have all the money I need, something would be here. Not just for me, but for everybody. I'm sure I'm not the only one who is looking for a sexed muscovy hatchery.

    Have you looked on your states thread? I do think I have seen where some ship adults on the buy sell tade thread. . maybe Celtic Oaks Farm since she has Scovys, she is in south FL. but I know she ships eggs and probably does adults and ducklings too. if you type in her name on the search you can go to her website. Also Al's Quackery[Leary Cow] she has Muscovy's don't know if she ships though.
