Muscovies 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 similar to chickens. Perhaps
their most unique feature is their caruncled face, similar to 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.
