Muscovy ducks are “quackless” they nod their heads and have a gentle kind of hiss as a greeting. Oh, did we mention that they wag their tails and are really cute to watch.
We raise our Muscovies free range so they eat flying and crawling insects and the larvae. Our adult drakes (males) and females interact well with our free range chickens, goats and other livestock. They greet us at the gate and follow us around the ranch and are quick to dive into a puddle of water. We maintain our flock to control the insect population and as a side benefit get to enjoy their friendly duck-centric antics.
