I raise Muscovy ducks and have been offered 2 Indian runner ducks approx 6-8 weeks old.  Will the Indian runners be able to get along with the Muscovy's?  Some of my Muscovy's are really spoiled and I have 5 nesting females in my back yard.

If you have all females, then adding runners should be ok. If you have males, they will likely be so much bigger than the runners and if female and mated, that might be problematic.

TLWR - thanks.  I have both sexes but they only enter the fenced area to be fed.  They fly in and out at will.  But I think I'll try the runners since it appears that they seldom fly.
