    Can I have more than one Muscovy Drake in the same area? Will they fight?

    I want to sell my 'flock' of Muscovy ducks - one Drake but a couple of the new ones might be male. They all get along great but when I sell, will there be a problem with my drakes being put with others?

    Anyone in Alaska who would like to buy my Muscovy ducks, please contact me. They are absolutely gorgeous!

    I have two scovy drakes, and three hens, (used to have 4, but gave one to my sil). My drakes get along splendidly, and are best friends. They are just over a year old.

    We have several boys and girls, mostly boys. Initially, they all ran loose and there was minimal fighting, everyone had room to run away if they got into a scuff. Later we had to pen up the hens, they were getting picked off by predators. All the males mingle fine loose together, they just get a bit randy now and then. I just love how mellow Muscovies are.

    I have 2 muscovy drakes and 6 hens, my drakes are not related, they use to get into it quite often but seem to stay away from each other. The dominant one chases the other one but never actually catches him lol, but the emden gander is the king of the barnyard, well until our little banty rooster is around anyway It's hilarious to watch this little roo chase off the drakes and goose!
