My ones free range with chickens and they don't bother each other.
Muscovies only lay a clutch of 10-20 eggs and normally go broody and they are fantastic broodies and mothers. They may lay 2 or 3 clutches of eggs and that's it. You can give them goose or other ducks eggs to incubate.

The hens would not necessary lay eggs on the same day or even the same week.

Life span is 10+ years; possibly even 20 years.
