Ducks fight

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I think both of my ducks are boys and one of them keeps biting the other while that one bites me. When the duck gets bitten it just stays and doesn't try to fight back. Hasn't been blood yet but I don't think this is normal

Check the tail feathers of both your ducks if they are boys they should have a curled feather called a "drake feather" if one dosent have the drake feather but the other has the feather your drake will most likely be trying to breed with your female.
Hope this helped :3

See if you can get two females for your drakes do not get one. It will make them fight more and they can hurt the female while breeding I have three drakes and one female and my female has an injured eye from the drakes grabing the side of her face while breeding.
Also drakes wont fight if they are the same age and raised together with geese or swans here are two of my drakes with their flock of geese

my ducks are 1 year apart. It seems though that they only fight when I'm around them. If I watch them out the window, they don't fight
