    Curious what you guys stock your muscovies at for growout to 16 weeks. I currently have 25 4week olds in a 32 sq foot garden bed but they are quickly outgrowing it. Waiting for another garden bed to finish producing to move half of them. Does a stocking density of 3 sq ft per bird seem too low. I might clear out a 3rd bed at about 10 weeks.
