I'm besotted with our Muscovy ducklings!
We 'accidentally' came home with Muscovy ducklings after visiting the Domestic Fowl Trust on 2 May. We were supposed to be going to have a look to see if they had a Khaki Campbell drake & possibly ducklings to join our 2 Khaki Campbell ducks! But when we were shown the duckling room, we just fell in love with the 3 week old Muscovy ducklings & came home with a pair! (By the way, we did also bring home Donald Duck, a very handsome Khaki Campbell drake for our girls. He's fully grown & settled in straight away, soon taking us his position as protector & mate)
Since then the little ducklings have completely charmed us with their funny personalities & sweet little ways & having searched the web for information on them it seems I'm not alone in loving these ducks. So convinced that there may be like minded people out there & just bursting to share my experience I have been inspired to begin my blog.
The photo was taken not long after the ducklings arrived home.
