    Today I witnessed how my drake was challenged by a female. He fled from the fight and then got bossed around by her. I'm afraid as soon as his primaries are grown back there will be payback time...

    They sure do. I always read how much muscovies like to fly and how they perch up...mine mostly walk and barely roost.

    They are beautiful and a perfect example of drake/duck look at Lucy's face all girl.

    Oh she is going to be sorry. LOL mine mostly walk and the only time they roost is when outside I have stumps and large rocks for them to get onto. My 4 month olds were getting to the place where they wanted to fly actually one of them flew onto the top of their house about 6' off the ground, so I clipped their wings. I don't ever want to come home and find they have flown off just for the sheer joy of flying and they are gone for good. Maybe that sounds cruel but they wouldn't last the night here way to many preds.
