    G’Day from down under kellistill [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I too have no experience with ducks but hope that the folks on the Duck Forum Ken gave you a link to are able to help.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    Do you have any female ducks, or just the two males? I don't think two grown males are ever going to be happy with each other. I would rehome the mean one, and get the quieter drake a couple of hens to keep him happy.
