    How well would you say a muscovy drake can fly ??

    I want to try to train a scovie to fly with me while I got biking ,so I need to know if a drake could be able to stay in flight while I bike around. It would be trained for bike flight as soon as it could fly ,if it helps [​IMG]

    they've been known to migrate. When we had Muscovies they would fly up on the roof , over into the neighbors' yards, and also unfortunately into the street which is BUSY due to commuter traffic. i suppose if you condition him it might work but .......hmmmmm ...follow you while you bike ...idk..[​IMG] ...might decide to just do his own thing and you'd never see him again ( which is 1 reason why people tried to get them outlawed as a kept species )

    Also I think whichever duckling I choose for flight school will follow me. All my ducklings are imprinted and will run after me on the bike [​IMG]
