    I was reading another thread and they mentioned french white and american white. What is the difference?? How do I know which I have?
    I love my muscovies but this whole color thing is sometimes confusing! Also, is there any telling what I will get when my whites mate? I have one female and one male white, the rest are pied and black one's.

    Not sure about the white question, never knew there was 2 :) but I do know the male passes the colors on. I have gotten black and white babies from a white hen and drake tho. Must be in the genetics somewhere I guess. I like being surprised every year so I don't mind. Hope this helps.

    French whites are a strain, usually larger overall.

    As for white to white UNLESS their is something hidden in there (genetically speaking) you should get solid whites.
