    Muscovies are opportunists. If you neighbor offers a better deal, they are gone.

    my muscovies free range and theyre fine they stay close and i dont have a pond but there is a lake like 100 ft from my house and i havent seen them in it but it probably depends on the birds

    I have lost young ducklings to hawks, but not adults.
