One of my ducks is trying to kill my ducklings

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

One of my ducks just had ducklings and the drake is being great and is really gentle with the babies. But my 3rd duck who is on and off nesting keeps going after them. They don't even come up to her, she just chases and hurts them. This is the first time my ducks have had babies and any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!

take the mom and the babys out and put them in view of the others just not where they can touch for about a week then see how they act

Separate the duck and her ducklings until the babies are a bit bigger. After a few weeks, you can reintroduce them. :)
