Hi All, one of my Muscovy ducks is quite a bit larger than the rest. He/she is a week older than the other 5. My husband and I have noticed it appears as though the tips of his/her wings have been clipped He/she has stumpy wings and a very wedge shaped (Long) tail. We know for a fact his/her wings haven't been touched. Does anyone have any ideas? Cheers Phalara

It happens all the time with my drakes. Usually the other drakes have 'clipped' their wings for them. It can be so neat and look like a pair of scissors have done it :!:

Took a while for me to work it out, a friend also has the same thing happen. He had a drake entered into the Royal last year and the other drake clipped him.

Can be quiet frustrating.

Hi Honk, thanks for the help. My mussies are only 3 months old. I got them at 2wks the fellow I'm talking about was 3wks. They do run with my geese. Cheers Phalara
