Aggressive rouen duck?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
have 3 ducks , a female pekin, make runner, and male rouen, and they are about a year old. A couple months ago, the rouen had all of a sudden became aggressive with me. He doesn't let me walk around the yard, he keeps biting my feet. he also hate my hands, and we I put things down for them he lunges at my hands. If he gets ahold of my hands he pulls the skin back and it hurts!!! I don't know what is causing this. And he is not aggressive to the other two. What should I do? The other 2 ducks don't care what I do.

Well, you can try dominating him.  When he comes at you grab him by the neck with one hand, place the other hand on his back and firmly force him to the ground.  Hold him there until he stops resisting.  If his aggression persists and even escalates he would have to leave my flock.  Biting ducks are no fun.

As above. Teach him he is a duck who has chosen to be aggressive to an apex predator. If that doesn't work teach him the other way by eating him.
