    A Muscovy drake and two hens wandered onto my property today. :celebrate I want them to stay. I put chicken pellets, black oil sunflower seed and dried worms out. The hens ran away but the drake wagged his tail at me. Is that friendly? It seemed friendly. I have 4 acres very private, some thick trees and a large shallow pond. I live in Florida. HOW DO I GET THEM TO STAY!?!?? Any help is welcome I only know about chickens. I put some food out as I mentioned and I’m leaving them be. I want them to love my pond/grass and make it their home.:love Thanks in advance.
