Hi,

I have 3 muscovy ducks,they are all very tame and I'm thinking of getting a drake to breed with them...I've heard they're wicked so I'd like to hear your thoughts.

The ducks have their own house in a big pen shared with a dozen hens.

Thanks

It all depends on the drake. I have two mallard drakes that treat the ladies nice and both have their chosen lady. I also have a Rouen/Pekin drake that is just a complete jerk. He will chase any female and mate her while the other drakes try to ge thim off. He also follows me and bites at the backs of my legs until I pick him up and hold him ( he hates it lol but he stops biting) or I smack him if he gets to bad then ho goes off and leaves me alone.

Oh yes, ducks have pretty big nails and they are sharp. But they dont attack like roosters do with their feet, ducks use their beaks.
