    I have 3 pregnant moscovy ducks and I'm not sure if my son spooked them or my neighbors dog spooked them but my question is will they eventually return? do they have a good sense of coming back to the coop with the drake and chickens? I'm super lost and very upset

    Pregnant? do you mean she was nesting? if she was nesting you need to get an incubator going for them until she comes back, they may or may not come back, if she was still adding eggs to her clutch then she will probably come back or she may wait until she has finished her clutch elsewhere and hatched them then she may bring them back.

    Even if they are free range?

    Hi and welcome to BYC. I'd suggesting posting your question on the "Duck" forum.
    Good luck

    I agree with chicklover 1998's comments. And checking with the duck forum folks could be helpful too.

    Good luck!

    Hi again, to get to the duck forum, go to "forum nav" and scroll down until you see "ducks" and click. Then got to the "start a new thread" icon, click on that and you should be ok.

    Cheers
