Muscovy ducks have white feathers and puffy red skin around their eyes, which makes them look rather ugly. They also have beady little red eyes which they use to stare at you until you freak out and run away. They are really cute ducklings; fuzzy and yellow with a little black cap, but as they grow older, the red around their eyes come out and they go from being cute and cuddly, to somewhat evil looking. They have good meat and we do a batch of them every year. We sell lots of them before they're (hem) done in, but we usually have a couple in the freezer that you can buy on whim.
