So Hi guys, this is a puzzling one about change in duck behavior. We have two muschovy ducks, and 4 mixed chickens (I rescued them from Henny Penny that was at my Kindy Program). About a month ago we moved houses. The new house has much better fencing, a huge garden with trees and flower bushes. Both chickens and ducks seemed to really enjoy the new yard. We have both free range but the chickens do not enjoy the ducks, though we tried to sociallize them when they were little the chickens have never loved the ducks. They will very much leave the ducks alone but if a duck comes to close they will flap and jump on their backs and peck at them. They have never hurt the ducks but the ducks so try and avoid them. (the ducks never really go at the chickens. They seem to want to be with them) So during this period of moving one of the Duck Danny (yes she's a girl) has gone Broody. Jack (our other female) hasn't but we have had to separate them somewhat and when Danny comes out she chases poor Jack around we have had to lock one of them or both in separate areas. However they seem to settle down and have gone back to sleeping together at night (we leave their pen open and they put them selves in.) So this morning when I opened their pen I then went and let out the chickens. I gave them food and water. Danny tried to chase Jack a bit so I gave Jack some extra water mellon in her own area. As I was checking the yard Jack came over to me and so I knelt down, she sometimes tries to bites my toes or my legs, so I knelt down and she started biting, normally I just have to put my hand on her and pet her or rub her and this is all the attention she needs. However today when I tried to stop her from going and biting my feet and legs she flapped up and jumped on my arm flapping and trying to go my face. So I pushed her away took her and put her in her own pen. Once all the yard work was done, I went to see she seemed calm wagging her tail at me (no hissing or anything) So I opened her pen and let her out. She immediately ran toward my feet and when I tried to stop her she climbed my arm again straching she knocked me over and she landed on the ground and tried to go around to my back. I put my arm out to stop her because if she'd gotten on my back. So suddenly there was my chickens and they sort of chased her off. One of the chickens jumped her and pecked her and then hopped off and she ran the chickens stayed at my feet and I was able to get to the main door. Ive since checked on them and Jack shes laying in the shade, and the chickens are off in the yard. When I went to the door and wagged her tail at me. I don't know if she's now Broody and this her reactions? Or if she's lonely because the chickens don't want to spend time with her and her duck sister has been broody and doesn't want to spent time with her? Do I not spend enough time with them? I work full time so generally my partner is the one home in the mornings and evenings feeding them 5 days a week, where as I feed them weekends and Mondays. (She's never done this to me before and HAS never ever done it to my partner) We are both female so I just not sure whats happening.
