Hope these dont show up as links as i know there annoying, but heres is Hopefully Photos of each of my Muscovys!
20 birds in total and mum says i have to many! I dont think so lol

Here we go, We start with the Drakes first:

Image
Some of you may remember this boy when i put pictures of him up just after i got him, Hes from meat stock

Image
Blue & White drake from Dr Harry Cooper (My purchase at Longford Auction) Has Lavander in his breeding

Image
Blue & White Drake Purchased from Ranelagh sale in Huonville tasmania, Paired with below Blue/Lavander duck at time of Purchase

Image
I think this boy is a Bronze & white?

Image
Pair of Whites, Were used by my uncle to breed his meat birds
Ducks:

Image
Black & White Duck from Dr Harry Cooper (Duck paired to above Drake at Longford) Would be in my opinion my best Female in terms of Size

Image
Above is a Black & White duck i rescued about 3 months ago from Brighton in tasmania, She was living on the river with a few other muscovys and ducks but this poor girl was in shocking condition.

Image
White Muscovy Duck - Bought this girl along with 2 other white females from a couple on a farm whos son bought alot of Show birds then never did anything with them.


Image
I think this bird is lavander? I have 2 others the same as this all sisters, Or is she a silver? She does look blue in the pic but dosent look like my Blue and Whites? Opinions please

Image
Black & white (Has a lot of chocolate coloured fethers comming through this moult shes 2yrs old, this bird and her sister are the last decendants of my original pair of Mussies

Image
Black & White duck (Same place as White Duck)

Image
This is maggie, She belonged to a friends mother who then sold her onto me, I then passed her on and regretted it since they day i let her go, 2 years later i received an email to say if i wanted her to take her because she was a tad naughty with removing Roosters tail feathers, So shes back to stay for good this time!
Im going to Continue to load pictures of the other birds up through out the day as my Pc is that slow, Please give me your opinions on there Show prospects and who you think should be bred with what, as at the moment i have all 20 running together,
Cheers

Agree with David. Some nice birds, but no lavender in there.

Goodluck in your breeding

What a great menagerie you have there taspekins, and I do believe you have the mussie bug really bad :lol: Still, I won't hold that against you :P Some ripper colours you have too :D Don't know how old your pics are but some of your birds are well into the moult while others aren't (isn't it always the mussie way). There are a few that wouldn't look out of place in the online mussie show if you were interested. Whatever way you ultimately decide to match them up, one thing is for sure, you are going to have a mussie explosion of mind-boggling proportions this coming season, with many wonderful and exciting colours to boot.

Have really enjoyed your fabulous pics :P 8)

Regards :)

Unfortunatley i lost the White drake pictured with his female, Found him dead in his pen the otherday, Was perfectly healthy (Weighed a ton) and also lost the Drake pictured from Dr harry (He decided to fly out of the yard after i locked them in and a Devil found him, But otherwise everything else is doing alright,

More pictures to add soon!
