Short summary
The study used 46 Muscovy and 44 mule ducks. The analysed ducks of different genotype differed significantly in the water content, sodium content, and redness of breast muscles; in the water, fat, and zinc content of leg muscles; and in the sodium, iron, and copper content of liver. The sex of birds had a significant effect on the mineral content (Na, K, P, Mg, Zn, Fe, Cu) of liver and leg muscles (except for iron and zinc) and on the sodium content of the breast muscle.
