No, I can't take credit for any of those photos. I just found that collection on heise.de (actually a computer/ tech news site) and thought many people might like them.

Here are pictures of one of my Muscovy duck females, she has a particular fetish for plastic bags, cant keep her away from them! If she finds a bag she tries to get inside it, possibly to lay, but she never lays any eggs whilst inside them! I even put this one on top of a wheelie bin to keep it away from her, but she still found it, and flew up on top of the bin to get at it!

Adorable! :D I think this is the same kind of duck I saw at Cusworth Hall. I wanted to scoop it up and take it home!

Here are the pictures. He (she?) came running up to us when we started down the path. It was so funny! Ate right out of my hand. Although, he was less than pleased when I pet him. Not irritated enough to stop eating out of my hand, but fussed at me a little between beakfuls. :lol:

100% A Muscovy Duck Catch up! A lavender and white, like 3 of mine are! This one you fed was a female, the males (drakes) are a lot bigger and have most of their head and face covered in that red growth stuff. Lovely little female you saw! They wag their tails like a dog when they are happy or exited :)

She was the sweetest, funniest thing! She came running up to us so fast that her little legs were flying out to the sides. She practically skidded to a stop and looked at us like, "Whatcha got?" And thanks for solving the mystery. She was the only one of her kind there and none of us knew what she was. :D

Funny! How beautiful.

BTW, Invader Zim is a big hit with my kids, Padawan.

'Tis but a shame the Irken invasion has been cancelled sister Jennifer! No more new episodes :( Such a hilariously dark sense of humor it had! :lol:
