    Any one know anything about Turkey ducks?
    Would they be ok in my chicken coop, or would they harrass the chickens or vice versa?
    A buddy of mine just called me and sain some one abandoned 4 of them at his place. He has 40 acres and they were wandering around in his yard when he got home.

    They are certainly not a pretty duck, rather ugly I would say but I'm not a duck person.

    When I first saw my drake.............oh my. [​IMG] only thought was what the heck is that? one ugly duck ,after going to the show and seeing the other scovies in line to win, I looked at "Frankin" a little different....he is actually a very good Muscovy ,,ugly but a good representation of the turkeyduck ![​IMG]
