Hey everyone I have 2 khalki campbell ducks, one male (Dex) and one female (Dezzy). They share a big pen with 2 chicken hens (Pure Bred Black Australorp named Phantom) and (Australorp x Goldlaced Wyandott named Tiger) and a rooster (Pure Bred Blue Australorp named Echo) and are about nearly 9 months old. They've been together and hand raised since 3 weeks old. These last 2 months have been absolute chaos. When my ducks first started mating, my male would try to mate with one of my chook hens, but now has progressed to just attacking her all the time. She's looking a bit bald on the head and has lost a lot of weight since my drake chases her off when she comes over for food. I believe she is also lowest of the pecking order (Tiger). He also will not let any of the chooks near his female, he even attacks my rooster (whose a big sook) but twice the size of him. My chooks and duck hen are best mates, just sucks they can't even go near her now. Why won't my rooster defend himself or his hens? Why is he such a sook? Does he think my drake is the dominant of the flock? And just today, my little black Australorp (Phantom) started to go broody and has been sitting on her eggs all day and hasn't moved. My drake is now constantly harassing her, nudging her around and pecking her back feathers out. She seemed distressed so I moved my drake to the outside of the pen, and all he's doing is running up and back like he wants to go back in. As soon as I let him back in, he's either attacking or annoying my chooks again so I took him back out. He's now outside the pen, away from the chooks and is being very loud. He's an absolute pain. I know drakes are annoying animals but could he be doing all this for a reason? Maybe something to with his female (Dezzy)? I know now is the time to say bye bye to Dex, but will Dezzy be lonely without him?
