We have young Muscovy ducks. We decided not to clip wings since we live where we have predators. They are becoming a problem. We need to relocate them to pond but they do not like it. We carry them down and they promptly walk back.

Should we move their comfort zone and pen them up for a few days to re orient them?

Any suggestions

Thank you oldhenlikesdogs, now I know "something' about Muscovies.
Muscovy come from south America. Caiman, and leopards like to eat them as well as anaconda. Staying on the water is a dangerous thing for a muscovy. They roost in trees, and are more ground dwelling than mallard based ducks. :)
