    we lost our muscovy hen two nights ago to a racoon, so now our sweet drake is depressed ( me too)
    I think my options are to find him another duck or to give him to a family who has other ducks
    Would an adult drake be happy with the companionship of another adult drake if there were no hens to fight over? Or should I only consider a hen for his companionship?

    I don't know the muscovy breed at all, but I gave my husband's grandparents a pekin, a khaki campbell, and a rouen drake and all 3 of them are great together on their little 1 or 2 acre pond. They don't have any girls and are always swimming together. Also his grandmother on the otherside has 7 males and only 3 females and they are all happy and not beat up. I don't know how they do it, but I think it might be worth a show, although a female would be my 1st choice.
