    I got a pair of muscovies last January and I was wondering what the prospects are for the young duck (about a year old I think) to brood some goose eggs and then raise the goslings?

    Oh, my new girls are so wonderfully sweet I can't wait for them to go broody and raise some babies. I bet they will be great moms. They are just super so far. Letting us pick them up when they can't find their way into their new pen at night and talking softly to me when I talk with them.
    I am so glad i got some Muscovy. These girls are such a delight after my wild and funny Runners and others.
