    Yeah, mine freerange during the day with my mixed flock of chickens, turkeys, &guineas. They did sleep on the floor of the barn at night, but just this week they are roosting on the rafters like 7 ft high? Maybe they are trying to fit in with the rest of the flock?

    Might be lol Muscovy's are tree dwellers and in the wild do sleep in trees and I know of at least one BYC member who's Scovy's roost. Since I have 3 drakes that would never sleep together without causing havoc Mine sleep in stalls
