Khaki Cambell hen missing drake lonely

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have or maybe I should say had a mated pair of Khaki Cambells. The hen has gone missing and the drake doesn't seem to know where she is. Is this normal? He seems lost without her. Should I get some more females for him? He is wandering around down at the pond where they used to hang out together. Should I leave him or make him stay up by the house so if she was taken he doesn't meet the same fate. We were locking them in at night but they are very stubborn and wouldn't always come and now this happened. Thanks for any advice.

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! I'm afraid I don't experience with ducks but I'm sure if you pop by the duck section the keepers there should be able to help you. Here is the link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks
Good luck I hope you can find your hen, could she have gone off being broody somewhere?

Hi and welcome to BYC. I similarly know nothing about ducks, but my first thought was that maybe she is sitting on eggs somewhere. I'm sure the duck peeps will be able to help you out.

 

All the best

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

Please post on the "Duck thread,"  I don't know anything about duck behaviors.
