French white Muscovies ducklings for sale. Only females.
Females don’t quack - the pip unless they’re really startled, then they quack. Muscovy ducks are perching waterfowl - and they fly. A wing will need to be clipped to keep them down, and even then, they’ll glide. These are very strong ducks. They have more in common with geese then ducks, as they’ll happily graze grass/clover all day. Feeding a kibble or mash, they’ll decimate it. They hit full size in about 6 months, when they become sexually mature. They have claws like cat claws, so care must be taken when handling them.
Otherwise, super chill ducks - i often trip over them because they refuse to move out of the way… another commonality with cats
If you choose to eat them, they have red, non-greasy meat akin to steak. Tender and flavorful.
Egg production is mediocre at best, but they’re fantastic mothers who can raise up to 25 ducklings at a time.
They will destroy your garden - do not let them into it. If you’re looking for destruction-free garden pest control, check out runner ducks in my shop.
