    I don't have any pictures but I'm pretty sure it will look like a duck. [​IMG]

    Didn't know if you knew or not but just thought i would throw out the fact that any crosses you make between the two will be mules.

    This is the only one I ever had, I adopted it. It rarely quacked & was about Pekin-sized but it wasn't fully mature in these pictures(or before i lost it). This particular one was a hen so the males may get bigger. From all the pics I have seen of Mule ducks, they do not have caruncles. I am sure they will come out with all kinds of different color patterns depending on the color of Muscovy you breed the Pekins to. The lady I adopted this one from just happened to have only Black Muscovies.

    Quote:are you planning on breeding them for meat? there's no real other market for them. there's one guy near me that buys "pretty" ducks because he has customers that buy them for their ponds/lakes, but that's the only other person i have seen buy them for something besides meat, mosty because they can't reproduce.

    Im just planning on having them around the yard. my mom doesnt like the caruncles on the muscovies but loves their coloring, so i thought i would give her what she wants..... a duck with nice coloring and no "acne" as she calls it. i also like to experiment with breeding ducks and other poultry.
