I've had 6 duckling raised by their mother, 4 have now gone to their new home and I have kept 2, they are now nearly 6 weeks old.
I have integrated mother and ducklings with the two other ducks I have (a male and female, both parents to one of the remaining ducklings).
The trouble is the drake keeps chasing the ducklings, he isn't being aggressive as such, just constantly chasing them and of course they are afraid of him.
Does anyone have advice on this? Will this stop at some point? You can't really tell ducks to behave so I don't know what to do, I just feel sorry for the ducklings. They sleep separately at night with their mother still as I am afraid he might attack then and they won't be able to get away from him.
I'd just like to see them all getting on during the day and I'm not sure how I should be approaching this.
