Remember those muscovy ducklings a couple months back? Now look at these babies! I bet that they would weigh anywhere from 6 to 8 lbs dressed out right now.
They are all big, beautiful, plump, and happy.
Currently, they are working their way across the gardens cleaning up the foliage, bugs, fruit flies, and forgotten veggies before we butcher them out. One drake and all the hens in this hatching went to a friend to live out their days as ducks and be merry, but these 10 drakes have always been destined for dinners.
Every animal we keep has a purpose and a job (or three) which keeps the cycle of life healthy & happy.
These are the last of the ducks we are going to be raising for a couple years, but be sure, muscovy ducks are our absolute favorite breed of duck to tend, raise, love. or eat and will be back in our lives as soon as possible.
