Breeding Muscovies - Page 2
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Oh she is the best mother ever! They are getting more confident now and wandering the yard on their own more (all the birds have a 2/3 acre to themselves), hunting bugs and such, but always go back to her for a nap in the shade. They all go in the chicken coop at night without any coaxing. Even Fonz is a proud daddy, he keeps his distance but wags his tail at them whenever they come near.
I was concerned about how this would go with ducklings around the chickens. My husband kept warning that the ducks would kill the chickens if they got any where near the ducklings, but I don't think he has any experience with Muscovies because they are so peaceful and gentle. There haven't been any problems at all.
