    Can Muscovy, Indian Runner and Call all live together?? How many square feet per duck both inside and out??

    Calls are compatable with runners, but muscovies are very mean to other animals generally, so I'd advise against them.
    Square ft per duck in a coop: 4
    Square ft per duck outdoors: 200

    I think only about 50sq feet of run space minimal but 200sq feet would be nice for them too.

    Quote:Aggression is not necessarily my issue with housing all these together. I'd be concern about the Muscovy and Runners trying to breed the calls.

    Ouch... That would be like a standard rooster breeding on a banny hen. But it's not. It's a standard DRAKE breeding on a banny hen.
