    Ok, so I have 2 dumb questions that I want to know if they might apply to me in my life.

    1st- So my uncle is moving right up the road from me, not very far, would my hens be wandering up there to his house, because he has other hens and roosters.

    2nd- I have 2 welsh harlequin females and 2 khaki campbell females, i am going to be getting 3 female muscovys plus 1 male muscovy. Will my male muscovy keep too his muscovy hens or will he try to mate with my other female ducks too?

    Any help is much appreciated!

    the first one sounds more like a chicken question

    as for the second question once he is comfortable he might mate with them.
