Motley crew

Before the arrival of the Three Musco-teers, all of our Muscovy ducklings were pretty much identical. With some new genes on the scene however, this year’s offspring are a real motley crew…

Less of a motley crew and more of a spot-the-odd-one-out gang are doing really well and Nest Thief seems to be very happy with motherhood.



Broody Brenda is still a regular visitor to the kitchen door, demanding a grain hand-out for her family. We need eyes in the back of our heads though or any leftover cat food rapidly disappears. Yesterday both Patches and one of the chicks looked equally disappointed that the dish was empty!

    Those ducks have grown! Last picture of Patches and the chick is an award winning one for sure 🙂 Laura

    Love the baby ducks – really cute. We hope to hatch out some ducks next year – just need to build a bigger pond first. Really lovely blog.

      We have a couple of those wee kiddies’ paddling pools for our ducks. However, the adult Muscovies aren’t into water really and are content with a shallow water filled bowl for all necessary ablutions!
