Ok so this is the trio i bought yesterday,as for their color i think there is a lavender boy, white and lavender girl (although you can't see from the pics that she has very light lavender in her tail, back and neck) and a blue and white girl.

all comments welcome

The boy who i just love, he is so beautiful :D: he is definitely a keeper and oh so big well to me anyway :):

And the girls, i will keep the blue and white girl but i will probably sell the white one, but i don't know yet.

I looked at hem and did like the drake.

The 'white' female i would hang onto her for a while if i was you, from memory she had some what looked to be lavender on the head - although it may have been dirt. Some of my best lavs came from near solid drakes and ducks with only a smidge of lavender.

The drakes head is very nice. Were these in the last bank of pens, in about the last 20?

Yes the last 10 pens or so. mattv also bought (after i persuaded him) the two females in the very last pen. Only because one female had sort of Buff feathers on her head and neck and I'd really like to see what she throws. I've seen Buff Muscovies from pictures David's shown me and they are gorgeous! :oops: look at that, i like them :bolt: :wink:

Buff or blue fawn?

I have seen a few blue fawn birds in Australia and they are impressive. The fawn is very very similar to buff. As the muscovy cant be crossed, these genes must be in all our current birds to some extent, just a case of sorting them out.

Its good to see that they did not go to a meat buyer - i too will be interested to see the results.

i think i got them pretty cheap only $55.00 which was under what i was prepared to pay for he male alone, so i am very happy with them :)

My knowledge of muscovies is severely limited, but I really like the splash one. She is lovely!
