Are muscovies as messy as other breeds? This may be wishful thinking on my part, but they're so different in most other areas I was hoping they might not be quite as bad. How big an area would a small group need in order to minimize visible damage? Also, I know they can fly, but if I kept the wings clipped, how tall would a fence need to be to keep them from jumping out? My SO would have a fit if they managed to get to the plants and snails in his koi pond and kill too much grass, so I'm trying to find ways to manage this that will keep my future ducks in his good graces and off the dinner table. If worse came to worse, could I just keep two, or would that not make much difference mess wise? I feel dreadfully ignorant asking so many questions, but I never had issues like this with chickens. I'd hate to let go of my duck dreams simply because they're messier.
