    Our ducks do the crotch thing, too. I think it just seems like a protected place to wall off the world with. XD And I dunno about that yard being big enough for that many ducks!! I'd know for sure if they were all mallard-derivatives because those guys make poop-mud out of everything, but I'm not sure about muscovies. They might be kinder on that lawn. I'm jealous of your barred muscovies, by the way! Make sure you clip wings on the girls, or you'll lose them to that glorious canal like I lost my 'scovies to my neighbor's glorious pond. :eek:
