My two muscovy drakes got into a battle tonight- it was awful I heard the neighbor dog barking through the fence- and looked out the window. My drakes were rolling-LITERALLY- both wings outstretched, with a bite-hold on each other. They had knocked over the fresh water pan, and were absolutely caked in mud. I watched for a few minutes, hoping one would surrender- but they just kept tumbling and burying each other in the mud. I finally grabbed a broom and went outside and separated the two of them. They went around a dirt hill and started back up. I separated them again, and they both retreated in to their "separate corners". Both look like mudballs. Both have broken feathers everywhere. Both seemed out of breath. (hard to tell with all the hissing). Would they actually fight to the death? This is not good. Not good at all. I have five hens. Both boys were from last summers hatch. My most favorite drake, and the other one has angel-wing. I sure would hate to decide that one needs to be rehomed. My yard is not such that I can keep them separated. This was a terrible terrible fight. Both needed to be brought in and hosed off, but I am having surgery on my arm in the morning, and could not have caught either one or carried them in the house. I hope they dont get cold tonight. The coop is heated if they choose to go inside. *it has been a few hours, and both are sleeping on hay bales in their enclosure. Not too far apart.
