I thought about getting a muscovy but I hear they they're quite big, and living in the city, We don't have a really big yard. Our front yard is big, but we don't use it because its right next to the road on the corner [so both sides] and it only has a wire fence, which offers no privacy. How much space would i need for a muscovy duck and three chickens in a yard? and how big would my coop/run have to be or all of them to be together? will they get along? This is my coop now, its quite small but when we let the new chickens out of the quarantine pen that you can see on the left, well be adding that pen onto the run for more space. The silver stick is a meter ruler. The main run is 1.6m across, 0.90m deep, and about 1m high. included in this space is the sleeping/sheltered area which is about 0.65m high, 0.90m deep and 0.5m across. plus the little nesting box on the outside. The triangle shaped chicken wire pen is just over one meter on two sides and about two meters on the front side, its a little lower than the main run. we can easily add more room fr the chickens if it's recommended, if it's safe fr the duck to be out all day then wed rather do that than add to much onto the run because it'll end u taking up most of our yard. We let the chickens out ever evening for three hours or so and on the weekend mornings for about half an hour before we go out. Our entire section is fenced as we used to have a dog, but we're not sure if it is safe to let the chickens out all day as one of them will be a bantam and may be able to squeeze under the gate, and we also have two cats, one of which loves to chase things, although when we have seen them spying on the chickens lately the chicks seem to be able to make enough of a fuss to scare the cats away. Does anyone think it would be safe to have the duck out all day since it is quite large?
