We did wonder if someone had bought a drake and some ducks when ducklings and one of the girls turned into a drake, and they didn't want two drakes.
Guess we will never know, but he has a loving forever home with lots of new friends, never really thought about Muscovy Ducks, but he is certainly friendly and placid
