    Looks to be a Muscovy or Muscovy mix.

    It does look muscovy. And if your child can hold it in the kitchen, it was either dumped or wandered/flew off. Looks like a keeper.

    Whatever it is, it is very tame to allow you to carry it around.

    Thats what I was thinking. My friend has two muscovy ducklings she got for free and one its feet are HUGE! And its tail feathers are much bigger. The other one its feet are much smaller, and it doesnt have much tail feathers yet, and is a bit smaller. Would you say that she would have a boy and a girl? Next time am over her way I will get some pics [​IMG]
