    What do you give your free range Muscovies for "treats" to keep them healthy and friendly? I've been giving mine layer pellets mixed with cracked corn every morning and night. Thoughts? They seem to be doing great.

    Cracked corn is an okay treat especially in winter when they need extra warmth. Mine especially love whole corn. and Meal worms dried they love. Which is a good treat if you live in the part of the county where all living bugs are either hiding out over winter or have died because of the cold. Good source of protein meal worms are. I also give mine chopped kale and romaine lettuce for greens since there are none here in winter.
