Greeting from Cork, Ireland

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a mixture of Highline Whites, Bluebells and Rhode Island Reds and Kacki Campbells ducks

One of my Blue bells keeps pecking the eyes of the duck who submits to her and also follows it around.  it pecked the eyes of the first duck which i had to dispatch.   i had treated the eye area with saline solution and have separated them but its not fair to the duck. has anyone got an ideal of what i should do other that get rid of the Hen?  many thanks

Hi and :welcome - great to have you onboard with us. 

 

I'm sorry, I can't think of another option for your hen, but maybe others will.

 

All the best

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! Sorry to hear you had to dispatch one of your ducks, that's such a shame. I too can't think of what else to do other than get rid of the offending hen. Things like this can become a habit for them which could be hard to break.

Could you get your duck another friend and keep them seperate from your chickens?

Good luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Glad you joined us! My sister lives in Bantry! What about the "pinless peepers" for the offending hen? That might stop her!

I agree and was about to suggest pinless peepers and if they don't work  mean hen will probably make good soup.  Could you keep your ducks separate from the chickens?
