Ok, as I posted.... we got 2 Muscovies over the weekend, which after chatting with you.... turned out to be drakes. They have been raised with chickens and are currently in with ours. They are doing fine but we aka Hubby has a few questions! We have been told that unless we seperate them OR get them a few girls of their own.... they will take out their affections on our chickens. This did happen yesterday to our Jersey Giant, poor girl!LOL So, if we get them girl ducks and they ALL live with our chickens in same house/run..... will they then, leave the chickens alone? Or, if we need to seperate the ducks from the chickens in seperate runs,etc. When we free-range them in the yard, will the ducks go back to their pen and chickens to theirs or will we have to constantly move birds? We have a large enough lot to make seperate pens for them and once in the yard for free-range... they seem to all go their seperate ways. That isnt the issue, it is more -will they learn to go into seperate pens OR do we even have to seperate them?
