QUICK OVERVIEW

  • Muscovy ducks originated from the wild Muscovy found throughout Central and South America, making it a completely different species than all other domestic breeds. It is the heaviest breed of recognized duck breed, with males frequently being twice the size of females. Despite their large size, they are very capable fliers, particularly the lighter weight females. They are also prone to roosting and perching on objects like chickens. Perhaps their most unique feature is their caruncled face, like that of a turkey. Despite their exotic appearance, they make excellent utility birds. The breed has always been a prized meat bird and produces a large, well-muscled carcass in 12-14-weeks. They are also excellent foragers, and the females make excellent natural mothers.
