LOL... there 5wks today... so when is a duck considered an adult and are done growing.
Generally I think 16 weeks is considered fully grown, at least for runners! I think the same applies to all Mallard-derived breeds, though I'm not sure if Muscovies follow the same rule...

I butcher at 12 weeks, and they're almost adult size then. I would bet by 16 weeks they are darned close to adult size/weight as they'll ever be. I wouldn't say they're mature and filled out until they get their nice carucling/masks.
I wanna see pics please
Quote:They are horrible to take pictures of... it;s like they see the camera and squat down and turn away i tried this morning and totally failed.
