The Muscovy duck (Cairina moschata) is a large duck native to South America & Central America. Small wild and feral breeding populations have established themselves in the United States, particularly in Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, the Big Island of Hawaii as well as in many other parts of North America including southern Canada. Feral Muscovy ducks are found in New Zealand, Australia, and in parts of Europe.
Please look at our pics, these are our pets! We do not have any pure white Muscovy here.
Muscovies are a large duck, with the males about 76 cm (30 in) long, and weighing up to 7 kg (15 lb). Size somewhere between a crow and a goose. Females are considerably smaller, and only grow to 3 kg (6.6 lb), roughly half the males’ size. The bird is predominantly black and white, with the back feathers being iridescent and glossy in males, while the females are more drab. The amount of white on the neck and head is variable, as well as the bill, which can be yellow, pink, black, or any mixture of these colors. It may have white patches or bars on the wings, which become more noticeable during flight. Both sexes have pink or red wattles around the bill, those of the male being larger and more brightly colored.
Although the Muscovy duck is a tropical bird, it adapts well to cooler climates, thriving in weather as cold as 12 °C (10 °F) and able to survive even colder conditions. In general, Barbary duck is the term used for C. moschata in a culinary context.
The domestic subspecies, Cairina moschata domestica, is commonly known in Spanish as the pato criollo. They have been bred since pre-Columbian times by Native Americans and are heavier and less able to fly long distances than the wild subspecies. Their plumage color is also more variable. Other names for the domestic breed in Spanish are pato casero (“backyard duck”) and pato mudo (“mute duck”) becasue they do not quack, but more of a muted quack or whisper.

All eggs offered for sale herein have been produced by our own proven stock. BUT There is still no guarantee on hatching eggs end result, anything can happen during shipping or your handling, so if our terms dont work for you, don’t buy them!
Due to the variability in incubators, and because I have no idea how you will handle the eggs once they are delivered, I cannot guarantee the eggs will hatch.

Tips for getting good hatching results!
Do not wash them! You’ll wash off a special natural bacteria coating that protects the egg from perishing so quickly. (Why is the US the only country that washes chicken eggs for eating, when it only speeds up the perishability process? Remember egg washing is not recommended because Salmonella can move into the inside of the egg through pores in the shell, increasing the risk to consumers. Never wash an egg that is intended for incubation.
Broody hen at your home? Old English and other Bantam chickens are excellent for hatching your gamebird eggs naturally! If you’ve got one that wants to be a momma, you let her sit on your gamebird eggs for you!
When you get delivery, slowly and carefully unpack your eggs and place them in a egg tray or carton and place them points down 24 hours to let them rest from their trip and allow temp of egg to adjust to room temp. You don’t want to put a cold egg in the incubator. These tips will help a lot w hatching, friends!
