    got given this little baby today, i actually tried to help its brother or sister yesterday that had a respiratory infection but unfortunately it was too late and it died last night :( the woman who gave the sick one to me had never raised ducks before and knew nothing about them and only had this one left and it was stressing out because it was alone so i offered to take it as well because i have raised quite a few ducks but i have only ever raised muscovy ducks and have never had any that are this black before so i'm not sure what type of duck it is, any help would be appreciated :)

    That looks like Muscovy but let's ask the professionals! @Going Quackers @Miss Lydia

    If the lil one has a lil pointy tip on the end of it's bill then it's Muscovy i couldn't see one does it have a smooth round bill tip or pointy tip?

    It has a bump on the end like a muscovy but it doesn't seem very pointy like the muscovys
