    I have two Muscovy hens and I recently got a drake (who has gone missing [​IMG] ) usually my girls walk 'round the yard together but the past couple of days I have only seen one at a time, I am trying to see where they go, which is not easy when you have a nosey dog who follows your every move. Anyone give me advice/info about this nest sharing if they are. thanks in advance

    They can absolutely share a nest, and some share well others don't, I had some females sharing a nest before and one of them kept eating the eggs :( so I find it best to keep them separate
