    I don't know much about ducks. But from what I have gleaned off BYC, I have never heard of ducks being aggressive as long as they are kept properly.

    If you have any specific questions, you can post here in our duck section for more info...

    Ducks are genital for the most part and funny to watch and do
    not rip up your lawn like Chickens do ...... [​IMG]

    Do you mean to people or other birds? A drake duck may try to breed chickens hens, if he doesn't have a mate. Since their "parts" are different, he can kill or severely damage a chicken.

    Welcome to BYC. Most ducks are relatively non aggressive, but some drakes can be aggressive - especially during the breeding season.

    Instead of buying ducks, I went to the nearby feed store to buy feeders and lamps and I saw little cute chicks so I bought 7. The store owner said I got a barred rock and a black australorp, but I can't tell the difference. Can you help?
