I have a couple of Peking ducks - one male and one female. They are two years old.
We tried to release them into the brook on our property, but there were other Peking males living there that really beat up on the female. We made a nice home for her in our yard, and then the male we released with her came back (like 2 weeks later). They have been living together fine and most definitely have a relationship...until recently - we notice that he was jumping on her and really chewing up the back of her head to the point where it was bloody. She has been having trouble walking too it seems. She will go 15ft and just plop down on the grass. We separated them with chicken coop and also put a screen between them at night. Does anyone know what her problem could be? Is it possible that he hurt her while jumping on top of her? They have been separated for one full week and her head looks much better, but she's still very weak and not walking around like she used to! If anyone has experienced this, please let me know what else to do to help her. She has been to the vet, but the vet just gave her antibiotics because her feet were hot. Not sure the vets around here know that much about Pekings.
