I have a question about keeping Muscovies with other ducks. I looked for this in the archives but I didn't find a discussion that answered my question. My intent is to keep a handful of Muscovies (1-2 drakes, 3-5 ducks) for producing meat ducks and just 'cause I like 'Scovies. I currently have chickens, but after learning about the egg laying ability of many kinds of ducks, I am leaning towards phasing out the chickens as I build up the duck herd, and replacing the chickens with an egg-laying breed of ducks. I know that any Muscovy/Mallard type duck eggs will be sterile, but I'm not intending on keeping the Mallard ducks for hatching, just for eggs. Any suggestions on mallard breeds that tolerate Muscovies well and are decent egg layers? I'm already figuring that the bitty Call ducks or any bantams will get thrashed regularly, so they're not an option. I'm looking at about 10 adult ducks total.
