With muscovy legislation are you planning on not selling the breed?

    I have been looking for silver and cream muscovy and find none.... are folks worried about the legislation passing and getting out of them or are these just hard to find?

    I think those are just rarer colors than the ones you would find....but also the muscovy legislation is changing things as well....................

    Silver and cream are not going to be very common so you will need to look harder. Once we all know what the final Reg. will require to keep and breed/sell Scovies, it will be easier to plan for next spring.

    I have Silvers & Self-Blues and the Silvers are harder to get. I was completely suprised and excited to get a batch from my blue hen/blue drake this year, over half the babies are silvers! but they're still young & in the brooder.

    What part of Oregon are you in? I might have an extra SB or Silver hen coming up soon, they're just finishing growing in their flight feathers so it's almost time to pick them out [​IMG]

    I'm in the Portland, OR area. If you happen to end up with a hen let me know [​IMG] I hope this Regulation thing goes easy on the domestic birdies !
