We've been raising Muscovy ducks for over a year now. We initially bought some 5 week-old ducks at a local small animal auction. They haven't been so prolific as we were led to believe, but we have had some clutches hatch and have had duck on the table and in the freezer. In fact I found a recipe for a sage duck sausage I am yearning to try.

We (or should I say Number 1 son) built a new duck pen last week. We planted greens in their old pen so we can turn them back when they use up the new pen. We've lost a few to fox (we believe).

Here's a picture of some of the ducklings.




Oremus pro invicem!
