Muscovy Duck Information and Photos

February 17, 2018

My muscovy ducks started dropping eggs in random places in my yard. I am new to this process and was wondering if this is normal? They are unprotected so I don't know what to do.


I thought they were supposed to nest. Please help. All information on this process will greatly be appreciated.

Do you have both male and female ducks? If not you can gather up the eggs and use them for cooking. They make great eggs to eat. If you have both male and female they will normally lay eggs in a nest area and hatch them. As long as the dog is just dropping them around the yard, they won't hatch and just rot and start to stink. You are better off picking them up and using them than leaving them lay around.

This baby came from mama duck, whose name is Wings. She is a very good mama ;) This is one of our 9 Muscovy babies.


This baby is so pretty, and sweet. She (or he) needed a bath and some cuddles. I had to share ;)

Gooding is 1 year old and a Muscovy Duck. My husband and I found Gooding and her siblings, Berry and Lawrence, at a flea market last fall. All three for the very thrifty price of $10! We had always wanted to have Muscovy ducks, and found these three to be so pleasant and interesting that we have gotten two more since then.
