I have heard a lot of hype about the breed so yesterday I bought my first pair of adult muscovy ducks. They are beautiful birds although I find their faces a little strange they are still intriguing. I brought them home in a crate along with other ducks but was told to be careful letting them out because they can fly. So I herded the flightless ducks out of the crate and left the Muscovies in there. They began to clime the walls of the crate!!!! I have never seen a duck that could clime so well! I let them out in my small open air coop and they were rightfully stressed from the recent truck ride and they both spread their wings and WOW they are big! These birds honestly freaked me out a little bit! Haha I have never seen such a strange duck! I am hoping that they can be free-range on my farm. I understand that they can fly and are tree nesters but I'm just looking for some more opinions on them. Can I trust them to come back if they are free-range? I am hoping that they will nest in a high nesting box in my coop but I am wondering if they will seek the trees lining my property or even the loft in my barn. I would be ok with them nesting in my loft. Should I set up a certain type of nesting box in the loft so that they are attracted to it? Any advice is welcome! I know very little about the breed so I will be doing more of my own research also.
