Here is my hobby, pound for pound these little guys are worth way more than the cows ;-) . There is 11 in this batch, had a hen hatch out 14 a couple days, and have 3 or 4 more still sitting on eggs.....

These ones are about 2 weeks old

We had two hens and a drake. They had young and were so cute. We lost them all to skunks. Do you have that problem in Canada.

I haven't lost any big ducks or ducklings to skunks. Lost a nest of eggs this spring though, and we have lost banty chickens to skunks as well.

Not a whole lot. They eat flies and grasshoppers, so they are nice to have around the yard (just not up on the front step :mrgreen: ). They do taste good, but we rarely butcher one. Mostly I just sell off the babies to other people who need lawn ornaments :lol2:

Muscovy ducklings are really cute--I'm sorry I can't say that about Daddy..I'm sure he is a fine upstanding speciman of drakehood,but oh my the wattles..
