    I have a muscovey duck, about 5 months old. He comes and goes as he pleases at my house (he flys around the neighborhood to the neighbors and such) , I've had him since a week old. Well, we plan on moving in august (i know its awhile away), in the general area, same town, and I plan on bringing the duck with me. Im wondering if he is going to fly back to our old house when we move? How do I go about moving him with us?

    If you clip his wings so he has time to get used to his surroundings then you should be fine. I always move animals in old dog crates.
