I don't mind if they leave the enclosure during the day and free range around the place, but I am wondering if they will return to it at night to roost if they get used to it being "home" with extra food treats in the evening to lure them back to it.  There is not an actual enclosed shed, just perimeter fencing and a large open dog house.  We don't let the chickens free range because they prefer hanging out on the porch surrounding our house and the mess is just too much, so we built a big yard with 6 ft chain link fencing that they stay in all day.  I let them out for a little while every afternoon to scavenge, but they go back in at night and roost and nest there.  Will the Muscovies hang around the house or stay in the fields more?  Are they easy to catch at night like chickens?  They are already very interesting birds, and I am very excited about adding them to the farm!  Kim
