I have 11 Muscovy's. 4 drakes and 7 ducks. First question: How many drakes should I have for 7 ducks?

1 drake can successfully cover 4-6 ducks, sometimes more.  I'd use two were it me & I were dealing with a pied flock.

I read somewhere that splitting a plastic 55 gallon barrel in half length wise and then in half again make good shelters for laying eggs. Is this a good set up? I already have the barrels. Just need to cut them. Waiting for my Multimaster tool to arrive to begin cutting.

Yes, I use that method very successfully.  You can see my set up HERE
