Ok so I have 5 ducks 2 of them are Silver applyard duck hens They were a year old this past spring & I'd gotten another 3 ducks that are Khaki Campbells 2 of them are Drakes & 1 a hen, so total there are 5 ducks w/2 of them drakes & 3 of them hens. I had wanted more ducks because the predators here had taken my original group of ducks down to the 2 last winter & I didn't want to end up with a single duck that's lonely. Anyway the Campbells came here last spring & are now full grown & everyone looked to be happy & healthy. From time to time there's been a bit of running around chasing one another but I figured that was them becoming sexually mature & on occasion I've noticed the different breeds break off into different groupings so the Campbells would be off on their own & the same for the appleyards.. Anyway I've noticed recently that 1 of my appleyard hens is being like outted from the group & actually chased out of the group by the Campbell drakes. Originally I thought it was just the 1 drake but now it looks like it's both... Why would they suddenly be behaving this way? I was actually more ready for them to be fighting each other or trying to breed hens too much & thought that would be the reason I'd want to thin out the group. I don't really want that because 1 there's always that threat of a hawk on occassion still & I was kind of looking forward to next spring having some home grown ducklings.... Any words of wisdom from those who know ducks??
