muscovy ducks and ducklings - $20 (Guysville)

We have 4-5 young Muscovy ducks, born about 2.5 months ago, about 3lbs now and growing fast. These guys will be ready to slaughter in 1-2 months, or ready to lay this fall. We also have a few little baby ducklings that still need some heat and help to survive. We would sell them for $12 each, or 3 for $30, if you want them instead of the older ones.

Muscovies are a swamp species that don't need a pond, or even a coop, as long as they have a place to sleep that's out of the wind. They will need fresh water every day, but a big bucket or kiddie pool is fine. The females can fly if you don't clip their wings but not that high or far.

Muscovy ducks are very quiet and pretty chill. They grow big, up to 15 pounds for a male and 8-9 pounds for a big female, but egg production is only medium. They're very good at raising their own families and finding their own food, especially flies. They really chomp down on flies!

Muscovy ducks are one of the easiest ducks to raise in a homestead context, but they're also popular in the meat bird industry because they grow big and quick.

If you want some, please reply through Craigslist email, or text seven for OH ate five six three three too three
Thanks!
