    I have 3 pekins and 5 Muscovy ducks.. 4 still kind of young and one that's about a year old. My pekins are about 5 months old. One of my pekins drakes is literally terrorizing everyone else at night in the coop. He is very agressive.. I think he is raping (or trying to) all if my muscovy ducks. Not sure about the other pekins because they still hang around him. He pecks, bites, swats with his head.. I've been putting him alone at night in a smaller coop because I feel terrible for the other ducks. Tonight I really got angry because now my adult female Muscovy won't even come in. That is a problem. I don't want something to get her. But she's obviously terrified of him.

    Any suggestions??

    Desperate for any help!!!!

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. Sorry about the trouble you're having with your Pekin drake. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. You should post this on our duck section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks where our duck experts reside. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck bringing your drake under control.

    I don't know anything about ducks either BUT, I wouldn't put up with a duck with any animal aggressive like that.

    I don't care what kind of baggage he may have - like duck parents that just didn't understand him. I suggest having him for dinner duck ala orange.

    I don't know anything about ducks. Definitely post this question in our Ducks section for more help. MIchael has left you with the link.

    Good luck with your birds and welcome to our flock!

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG] Pekin drakes are notorious for "raping" other ducks. What is your duck to drake ratio?

    And I agree with the above...eat him and try again.
