Would a drake take an egg from a nest and toss it into the pond?(I found an egg just opened and a duckling in the bottom of pond a week ago) from a post i did this morning i have had some helpful advive that my drake is attacking my ducklings, do all drakes attack babies? my drake doesnt like being on his own but i cant have him around the ducklings when they are born,tough luck i say!! are 12 week old ducklings able to fend off a drake that may try to attack it? I really want to do the right thing, i have sectioned off an area and have 1 duck to catch and i will keep them there until babies are all born and old enough to roam a bit more and that will keep the drake away from them, im just worried he will fly over their fence, hes a real bugger for flying, my girls dont fly at all but he flys for the convenience!! headache now, so worried about future duckys.
