We just got a 1 year-old Muscovy duck to keep our goose company but the goose doesn't pay any attention to the duck. The goose, duck, and our hens are allowed to roam our farm freely during the day but the hens go into the chicken coop at night and the goose goes to his goose apartment. We were hoping the duck would go in with the goose but he won't. He wanted to go with the hens but they don't like him in their coop so they chased him out. He has been bedding down in the barn next to the dog, who seems to like him and be protective of him. We would feel alot better if we could put him in at night with the goose but we are wondering: 1) how to get him to go in - every time we get him close, he turns and runs out of the barn; and 2) if the goose might be aggressive to the duck if it's locked in his apt. with him at night. It is plenty big enough for them both. Does anyone have any ideas on what we should do? Maybe we should leave well enough alone cuz everyone seems happy, except that we worry about a predator getting the duck at night in the barn if the dog isn't watching.
