Mucovy Ducks. First choice for small farms and backyards. Muscovy ducks can lay up to 195 eggs a year over a 40-week season. They'll nest three or four times during the season, hatching up to 20 ducklings a time. That leaves plenty of eggs for you, and LOTS of great meat! Poultry for small farmers: Journey to Forever
Muscovy duck info • We kept Muscovy ducks for years. Great eggs though not high producing. Their meat is similar to lean roast beef. They are more like geese than ducks and aren't purely related to either species. Drakes could be aggressive but were fun to have around.
