The Muscovy have wart-like ‘caruncles’ on their face that develop with age especially in the males. Sharp toe nails on their web feet as they are perching ducks. The duck is much lighter than the drake. The meat is lean and red. A good sitter and mother. They are a popular breed in Australia.
There are about 14 colour varieties. From black, blue, chocolate to white. There are 9 main colours in the magpie patterns.
|Drake||4.5 – 6.3 Kg|
|Duck||2.3 – 3.2 Kg|
