Muscovy Duck At Reddish Vale

What they lack in the looks department they make up in character. These are strange ducks.. they don't swim as often as other duck as their oil glands are under developed compared to most ducks.
They will also eat small animals, mice, baby rats and such like.... even baby rabbits are taken. If their diet lacks food such as this they tend to suffer from anaemia.


These feathered freaky ducks are kept for the table.... they are larger than other duck and taste good...... and if you are wondering ... 'Yes' I have and enjoyed it very much.

They are a strange looking duck.

I came to tell you to pop over to my Pics and Pieces blog...there are a couple videos of Lorelei and Otto...and if you have time you might want to click on the label Lorelei Rose to see what you have missed....

The link for Reddish Vale doesn't work for me...don't know if it is me or my computer though.

This one must be the source of the "ugly duckling" phrase. The problem with the link is an extra "http://" in the code.
