Hatching eggs from our Muscovy ducks. Our flock is comprised of fan favorite Zuko (our chocolate pied drake) and hens ranging in color from black pied to chocolate barred. See list of possible duckling colorations below. Photos are of some of the parent birds as well as examples of ducklings. Maximum of 1 dozen per order. Orders are filled on a first come first served basis. When there is a lead time on orders you will receive an email with the week your order is scheduled to ship.
We breed our Muscovies for temperament first and foremost - our flock is incredibly friendly and gentle, and are consistent layers throughout the laying season (usually March through November for our area). Muscovy ducks are a wonderful dual purpose bird, with drakes growing to processing weight quickly and yielding delicious meat that cooks more like steak than like other poultry. The hens are consistent producers of big beautiful eggs throughout the warm months, not to mention their friendly and quirky personalities are a joy to have around the farm. They eat any bug, reptile, or amphibian they can catch - I have seen our ducks eat everything from yellow jackets to bullfrogs, and if free ranged (like ours are) they are incredibly capable and efficient foragers. We always offer high quality feed free choice to our free ranging roosters and our ducks, but our ducks rarely touch it and prefer to forage for their own food. It is important to note that Muscovies are, despite their size, very capable fliers - if you do not want them to fly be sure to clip the flight feathers on at least one wing.
I am always keeping an eye on fertilization rates and will not send out eggs if I have any doubts about good fertility. By purchasing you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for your hatch rates, or any damage to the eggs after they leave our hands. We only sell our freshest eggs as hatching eggs to give our customers the best possible odds of successful hatches. Please handle your eggs carefully!
Please review our shipping policies and follow the instructions to ensure your order is sent out in a timely manner.
FARM PICKUP: I will reach out when your eggs are ready for pick up, you can then schedule a time to pick up your order. We are a small farm striving to produce the best possible birds for our community, not a large scale hatchery, and we appreciate your support! Use code LOCAL6 (for half dozens) or LOCAL12 (for dozens) to remove the cost of shipping & handling.
Possible Duckling Colors:Black, black pied, chocolate, chocolate pied, chocolate barred, chocolate barred pied, white, black capped white, and chocolate capped white. The highest probabilities are white, chocolate, chocolate pied, or chocolate barred. Our flock is somewhat sex linked - any ducklings that hatch black (in any pattern) are guaranteed to be drakes.
