These Muscovy ducks live at the lake across the street.
Before I tell my tale, I feel its important to know a little about me. I am not an animal husbandry major, a vet, or any other water fowl professional. I am a city girl from Los Angeles. The most nature I came across is when my neighbor put a goat in his back yard. (that's another blog). ^_^
What I can say about me, is that I take care of things. People mostly. I care for my two parents, 3 Katz and The Engineer. I am a sentimental fool! When I was young, and my brothers were mean to my stuffed animals, I would cry because I thought the stuffed animals had feelings. (what a dork!!)
Before I moved here, I never heard of a Muscovy duck. In fact, we had company from the UK that raised them and told us all about them. Apparently Muscovy's are the veal of ducks. Ew.
I have come to find them to be nice companions while I am out back, reading or swimming. They're quiet and friendly.
I have come to really enjoy my Muscovy ducks. :)
