    Are my muscovy drakes going to be mean to their ducklings when they hatch??? Is there a seperation period for the safely of the little guys???

    The problem we found was that the drake wants to breed w/momma duck as soon as he sees her. She's been on the nest unavailible for quite some time after all. [​IMG] We were afraid some ducklings would get squished as our drake high tailed it after mom soooo moved her and babies for a bit until the ducklings are a bit bigger. I'm sure someone w/more experience w/Scovies will be on here w/some answers.
