Intro/ aggression question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi I am new to this site. I need some help. I have two male Pekins I got them feb 27th they here a few days old so they are about 3 months. My one male Pekin is now attacking my dogs. I have heard mixed things- " get rid of the drake, eat him, get them females don't get them females" so my first step is females. So that being said these females are 2 months old what do I need to do? Keep them apart for awhile? lock them in the cool for a bit?
TIA!

Put them together and let em learn to be with each other.I'm surprised they are attacking your ducks.Ducks are not as dangerous as roosters.And plus,if your dogs not tough enough to tunr around and beat the crap outta him,you should step in.Are they just now turning 3 months?

 

But,they are gonna need more females then just 2.They'll never get along. You'll need 6 or 8 to keep em satisfied.

I have a  few chickens.

2 barreds,named Falcon and Hawk

1 New Hampshire rooster named,Zeus

2 New Hampshire hens named,Vanillipe (One has no name)

1 silver laced Wyandotte named,Special girl

1 White Leghorn roosters named Foggy

3 black&red Sex links,(Black)angel,and one red is named little red,and the other one is Mrs.Prissy

And a few others that sadly,died

 

I have a 11 ducks.

I got them on the February 29th at a few days old. And my dog has nipped them that's what I am worried about. Him hurting the ducks. He's a heard dog so he knows he's not suppose to but he will only take so much! I have tried chasing them off then they start Toward my dogs. Nothing worked I am seriously at a loss.

Spray with a hose as hard as you can everytime they chase him.Their about 3 and a half months old,I strongly suggest females they may be trying to mate.

Well I go today to pick up two.... I really can't do more then that. When I reached these guys before I bought them I didn't see anything about this. I will try the hose thing to!

You could always get rid of the aggressive on,and keep the nice one to have with the hens.

Yeah that will be my plan if he can't be happy with the two females... I feel bad for not being prepared for this I guess...

If he is very sweet,house ducks make great pets.
