    My drake is very mean. He pins down my duck hen untill she screams and he still does it. He took all of the hens from my other drake away.

    He is your dominant drake then. My drake will make his girls lay down then he will just stand on top of them. I don't understand all I know about why these things happen and not being a duck it looks to be mean. But if what he is doing is bothering you and he is causing distress to his females pulling out their feather on their necks and causing wounds then I'd either rehome him or place him separate from the girls for breeding season.

    My top guy (Thunder) is a bully also he picks on my other male (jumpy) they do the neck wrestling and the chasing and biting. And Thunder lets Jumpy know the girls are his.But they still run to each other when they get separated so I think it's just a who's the boss thing.Good luck trying to figure them out they are goofy little animals I laugh all day long at my four the little goofs talk to me yell at me and even try to push me around like there the boss of me. But I would not trade them for anything.
