Muscovy ducks are originated from Latin America but now are found all over the world. They are very hardy and easy to keep, can be raised for commercial meat production but also make lovely pets. Although they don´t necessarily need water for bathing they will much enjoy any opportunity given to them to swim. They can multiply very rapidly, mostly due to the duck´s very good mothering instincts. A duck  can be used to raise goslings too.
