Muscovies Experience Freedom

IMG_8921

The baby ducks are enjoying their first few days of freedom.  Please take a moment to admire their beauty as this is the best looking they will ever be.  There are several types of Muscovies but they’re all reasonably hideous by the time the reach maturity.

Unlike normal ducks, these don’t quack, and they barely swim.  Supposedly once their feathers come in they will roost in trees.  So far they are the best fowl we have had on the farm.  They take the best qualities of a duck and a chicken and combine them into a very sociable, but polite, unobtrusive bird.
