Hi, I've had chickens for several years, and we're considering getting a few Muscovy ducks (they're about 5 months old). I'm wondering if ducks lay eggs at all in the winter. At what age do they generally start laying? We're in NY, I don't use lights in my coop, but my chickens still lay some eggs during the cold months. I know that Muscovies are better for meat than eggs; what breeds would you suggest for eggs & temperament? Just in case we want to add a few more. My husband thinks our coop will become wet & dirty with ducks; how do those of you with both chickens & ducks keep the coop from being a wet mess? Do the chickens and ducks get along okay? Can they all eat chicken food? I've heard it's more difficult to get ducks into the coop at night. Thanks in advance.
