Muscovies are the only domestic ducks that are not derived from Mallard stock. They are a South American species. The original (wild type) colouration is black and white, but domestication has produced many more colours, including white, black, chocolate, and blue. The males are large, weighing up to twelve pounds, with the smaller females reaching only seven Their feet have strong sharp claws and are built to grasp, so that they can perch on branches. Some people consider them ugly because of the large red warty carbuncles above the beak and around the eyes. They are, however, very personable and interesting birds, and quite intelligent. Unlike most domestic waterfowl, Muscovies will often fly up and roost. They fly fairly well, especially the smaller females,

What a great duck and stunning colours.
A neighbour of mine many years ago kept these but I have not seen one for at least 20 years.
They make great eating.
