Hi! I have been lurking here for a while and decided to join. I have learned so much from everyone here already! I recently started a backyard flock of laying hens (chickens). Now I am interested in adding maybe a breeding pair of Muscovy to my flock. I currently have a run that is 6'x10' (also covered) and an inside coop attached to the run that is 3'x5' and has raised nesting boxes for my hens. My hens are 5 mos old and are not yet laying. My question is.. how well would the ducks do if I add them to my existing flock? Should I start with ducklings and allow them to grow up with the chickens? Would they need their own separate sleeping/nesting area? My primary purpose is not for pet or eggs, I would like to hatch each clutch in hopes of bringing meat to the table. Ideas? Thoughts? Experiences or lessons learned?
