Muscovy ducks and Chinese geese

In August 2015 we bought a male and four female muscovy ducks along with a Chinese gander and his two females. We would never have imagined the wonder we derive fom watching these ducks and geese evolve together amid the numberous free running chickens and horse on our 2 1/2 acres of field here in Burgundy,n France. For a little over three weeks two of the female ducks and one of the geese have been sitting on nest full of their eggs. We'll keep you posted as things evolve. By the way, even if we do live in France, we have no intention to force feed these geese. They all have their free fill of wheat, corn and whey in colostrum (from a local dairy farmer here in the village) plus grass, insects, worms and alike.
