10 muscovy ducklings hatched. The last two were weak; one has died and the other is in the incubator. The other eight are strong and healthy. What a variety of colors some are black and white, brown, brown and white, one all white.
These are the free eggs that came with the pair-quite happy I am, but I wish I hadn't lost any.

What an absolutely adorable pic.

We all feel the same. If they hatch we want them all to survive. It hurts when they don't.

The duckling in the incubator is still hanging in there. When the egg was damaged the duckling lost a lot of blood, but having survived the night he has a chance.

I wish there was a way to replenish the missing fluids when something like that happens. If baby makes it then it certainly has a strong constitution.

He appears to be slowly getting stronger; still in the incubator.

Yes, there already running around, eating, and drinking.

These are some of my teenage muscovys. I have never seen muscovys like these in color. Your thought??

Don't ask me. I thought calls only came in white. I like the pied look on the one.
Calls come in a lot of colors; really weird colors. I've a young pair I want to show when I get the camera. But the ducks in the pictures are muscovys. Until recently, I had never seen brown muscovy ducks.
