Moolah may have been accidentally drowned by our drake. He had never demonstrated aggressive behavior before this. A new pecking order was being established since the introduction of the new ducks to the group. She was found in the pool the next day. He had stayed 4 previous nights in the female house with no issues. Had we known this would have been the outcome, he would have never been placed in there with them.

As someone who has learned some very hard lessons myself, I can sympathize.  Moolah was a beautiful duck and will be missed. :hugs
