    i think muscovies are the best pets, i had a few that were really tame, not flighty like the other breeds, mine used to roost on top my house at night, a dog came in and killed 3 of them along with a bunch of chickens, that dog ended up in the paper being shot, it wasn't me but they made a big deal about this dog and that they wouldn't rest until they found who did it and that he never ran loose, that was a bunch of bull, what about my poor ducks, especially my big drake sherman he was beautiful, blue and white:(
