    I've taken on 2 female Muscovy ducks today. I've never kept ducks before only chickens. I do have a Pekin male who is also free range and spends most of the time in the river and comes to my back door at feeding time. The 2 Muscovoy's are 9 months old and currently on my patio where they seem to be comfortable. How long before I can open my patio gate and let them live like the Pekin fella? Thanks for any advise.

    Muscovies adapt very well. You may have to clip thier wings because they will fly over fencing and escape from thier yard. One of mine did that. Usually it will take 2-5 days to be able to let them loose.
