do Muscovy hens share a nest?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have two Muscovy hens and I recently got  a drake (who has gone missing :( ) usually my girls walk 'round the yard together but the past couple of days I have only seen one at a time, I am trying to see where they go, which is not easy when you have a nosey dog who follows your every move.  Anyone give me advice/info about this nest sharing if they are. thanks in advance

They can absolutely share a nest, and some share well others don't, I had some females sharing a nest before and one of them kept eating the eggs sad.png so I find it best to keep them separate
