The breeding of muscovy duck as a business is quite a young occupation, because the breed itself has not been popular and actively bred for a long time. Today, the situation has undergone some changes, thanks to which muscovy ducks are becoming common inhabitants of both large farms and home poultry houses.

The muscovy duck breeding as a business has great potential and is an excellent choice for the novice poultry farmer. There are many reasons for this and all of them in one way or another come from the species characteristics of these wonderful birds. Almost every point speaks in favor of their commercial breeding.

A little bit of specific In recent years, new species of poultry have been brought into the former Union countries, the breeding of which was not previously typical for a number of regions. One breed that has caught the eye and become widely popular is the musk duck, or, as they are commonly called, the turkey duck. The history of their domestication dates back to the distant past, when tribes of Indians were able to tame the turkeys, after which, thanks to active colonization, this breed spread around the world. On the territory of Ukraine, these ducks were first brought from France, and after the supplier was Turkey.

The natural habitat of these birds is Mexico, and there they are considered a species of wood ducks. The peculiarity of the breed is the absence of the need for ponds, because even without them you can be very successful in breeding the feathered birds. This breed has a certain resemblance to the Muscovy duck, which, in fact, is indicated by the name. At the same time, no experiments on turkey breeding were carried out, and its characteristics are exclusively natural.

The muscovy duck is a relatively new species of farm bird that differs externally from the common domestic duck because it has a pair of excrescences on its head, which give the bird an appearance similar to that of a turkey. The torso of turkeys differs in its width and length. Curved neck, large head, and long rounded tails can also be categorized as external features. Proper rearing, involving a complete diet, can allow to bring the weight of the drake to more than 6 kg, while the female black turkey can gain a maximum weight of up to 4 kg. The main purpose of raising ducks at home as well as in large farms is to obtain meat, which has excellent taste qualities.

Raising this breed is profitable in several ways, each of which can be perceived as an opportunity to earn and thereby support their own business.

In addition, the breeding of muscovy duck is not accompanied by the generation of numerous noises, because they behave quite quietly, for which they were dubbed "dumb ducks". Separately, the taste of the meat should be highlighted, because, it can be classified as a reference. The attractiveness of the business, built on the cultivation of turkeys, is based on the timing of their maturation, which does not exceed 4 months.

When planning the breeding, it should be remembered that this bird must be kept separately from other species of birds, because a number of problems are possible. Raising turkeys, unlike other breeds, does not require a pond, but if there is such a possibility, the duck will gladly take baths. In order for the business to become truly profitable, a plan must be made in advance, as well as related tasks.

Today, it is possible to purchase turkeys through specialized farms, poultry farms, as well as private backyards. In addition, with today's information technology, the Internet, where you can always find a lot of offers, can be used for this purpose with success. In order to establish effective breeding of ducks by natural means, it is necessary that there should be no more than 6 females per 1 male.

At home, under optimal development, these birds reach maturity at the age of 20 weeks, and it is then that the first fertilized clutches can be expected. It is believed that adult birds are the best solution for those who have decided to raise ducks in their own backyard, because it is the most profitable and avoids the mass of problems with which the care of ducklings is associated. The efficiency and speed of breeding depends on the right choice of breeder, which is the key to the success of the business.

In a situation where the business is built on the sale of meat products, you should think about buying a quality incubation system that will accelerate the process of hatching new ducklings. Thanks to this it will be possible to fatten them faster and obtain the desired product - meat. For this method of breeding it is important to choose the right egg, and it is very difficult to do without having experience.

Profitable or not the breeding of turkeys, largely depends on how professionally to this business the novice businessman refers. Given the fact that the order of most of the diet of this bird grows in the vegetable garden, the availability of a homestead plot can significantly save money. If there is no possibility to grow forage and attempts to find available greens do not give results, the only option is to transfer to a combined feed. In this case, part of the plant food must necessarily be present.

Growing 100 of the breed can generate a net profit of at least $250 per season. U.S. dollars for one season, and that's taking into account the minimum initial investment in business development!!!

Such a way of making money is becoming more and more popular, and every day more and more people are choosing the path of breeding turkeys, which can bring serious profit. It is noteworthy that this type of business is available even to beginners who do not have serious knowledge in this field, as well as financial resources, because the care of the bird does not require it.
