Muscovys and Mallards are 2 breeds that can fly. It would be heartbreaking for the small homestead to own either of these breeds, and then go out to feed them one day only to have them disappear. If you have a larger homestead with lots of room, Muscovys would be a great breed as they eat lots and lots of mosquitoes. Their ability to fly will help protect them from predators, and they usually will stick close to home anyway. If you have a small homestead, there are plenty of breeds to choose from to raise on a smaller homestead that won’t break your heart, too!
