Welcome to BYC! Glad you joined the flock. I have some experience with ducks. All I can see is 3 ducklings. One is white and the others are a yellow.

I don't see any huge duckling but, if he is causes so much trouble, you could separate him from the others  or rehome him. You may also want to post on the "Duck thread,"  so experienced duck folk can answer your questions.

Hi and welcome to BYC. Sorry my knowledge of ducks could be written on the back of a postage stamp, but the duck peeps will be able to help you out I'm sure.

Hi Liz, :welcome

 

I'm just in the process of learning about ducks so all I know to tell you is that the males often have a curl at the end of their tail feathers and they don't usually quack like the females. Checking with the experts on the duck forum is the way to go. Here's a link to get you there:

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
