Muscovy Ducks

These wonderful but not particularly pretty critters are Muscovy ducks. The drake is in the middle. In my egg carton last week an egg from one of these ducks was included.

Good googs, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: That is a new word for me.
Drôle de tête pour celui du milieu. L'œuf de canard est énorme.
Mary MacADNski: It is a bit smaller than a goose egg.
They are a little strange looking - Frank and I saw some at a wetlands reserve in England - but they were black. Same red skin on the face.
Mary MacADNski: They can be any colour combination. Florida is over run with them.
I love their expressions Mary!
Oh, dear me. I think they could get away with murder!

I think I can guess which egg..
Hmm that looks like quite an egg!
Not the most attractive of birds are they, but look at the size of that egg.

Hhaa! I can guess which was the duck's egg. As you say, not the prettiest fowl that we've seen this week.
The drake won't win any beauty contest, will he?
I don't like their red eye bits Mary, but that's just me being fussy.
Muuscovy ducks - I will have to look that up, Mary. my knowledge in these things is very poor. great shot btw.

Arrogant and ugly - sticking his tongue out at you.

You could make a big omelette with that egg, Mary
No post today Mary?
That's one big egg...
