    I have 2 black barred muscovy drakes no duck hens.I read that the drakes of this breed are really randy,and aggressive maters.Are they going to mate with my chickens and or young geese.Their only 6 months old now but they grow fast![​IMG]

    They may it won't matter if they mate with your geese nothing can come of it ,my gander mated with my Muscovy's for 5 yrs till I got him a goose, but if they mate with your chickens it will most likely kill them since they are not made to be mated internally. So either your going to have to get your drakes some girls of their own 2-4 each or separate them from your hens. My Muscovy drakes never touch my hens , they have their own girls. [​IMG]
