    I don't have any, but love how they look. I also think it is a nice characteristic that "mules" aren't fertile, so you can have them in with another breed of ducks and still get pure breds!
    My friend said that they go broody alot! After they hatch eggs, how long until they start laying again? Sorry, but I figured a thread on muscovies would be a good place to ask.

    I also love Muscovies.. I have 5 colors that I breed and show. Whites, Chocolates, Blues, Silvers and OF COUSE Blacks! I have been breeding muscovys for 6 years now.. Last year I kept only 5 breeders.. I raised 50 and am keeping 35 breeders this year.. So this upcoming spring should be crazzy!
