Hello I have 3 ducks, 1 male (runner) 2 female (runner, pekin) that are approx 2 yr old. We raised them and they have been in our pond for the last yr. We have now raised an additional 6 pekin who are 6-8 months or so. We have been trying to integrate in the same large outdoor area and pond. The drake is chasing them and ap po ears to try to attack them any chance he gets. He gets on top of whichever he can catch and tries to drown them (does not appear to be mating, very aggressive and biting the back of their necks). It has been a week to 10 day process of integrating alittle at a time. He does not seem to want to ease up. We have separated them. The older females seem ok with the younger ones. But when together with the male they are with him when he attacks. Any suggestions? He has otherwise been friendly. It has been very stressful. Tonight 1 younger duck is missing. I did not find him in the pond and hope he ran into the woods after being chased and will reappear in the morning. Suggestions? He is very smart and will wait for any chance my husband or I turn around to attack.
