Any advise from you guys about some potential new muscovy ducks? A friend of mine has offered several of these ducks to me for free, as he has too many and he knows I used to keep pekin ducks as pets on the small lake outside my house. Can I simply clip the muscovy ducks wings and release them onto the lake? They will be young adult birds. When I had my pekin ducks, I raised them from chicks and gradually introduced them to the lake. They would walk up my driveway at 4.30pm every day for food and I would lock them up in a crate for the night. I am worried the muscovy ducks will simply wander off into the fields. Also are they aware of predators? My pekin ducks were very clever and always kept a look out for any dogs or strange people. If they saw something they would quickly go onto the water. Thanks for any advise.
