    One of my muscovy ducks has just started building a nest the question is can i move the nest to another location or will the duck lose interest. Second question do ducks prefer to use steps or a ramp to get into a raised shelter but it's not very high of the ground.

    Thanks.[​IMG]

    I have a ramp, & my pair of muscovies use it just fine.

    1. There is a chance she will lose interest in the nest if moved. However, if it's in a area where she can be harmed by predators I would advise moving it anyways.

    2. You can use a ramp but all of my ducks prefer jumping into things rather than a small ramp.
