I have four other ducks and was thinking about getting some Muscovy Ducks. I know that the breed is pretty popular but I just wanted to know if the males are aggressive. I have a dog who tries to get the ducks sometimes and ive had them die from trying to protect the flock and being too aggressive. So my question is are the males aggressive? And if so how aggressive are they? I know that they can be intimidating. Any pictures or videos would be greatly appreciated!

My Muscovy drake is a sweet heart to me loves his Muscovy girls has never been aggressive to my dogs (4) and doesn’t mind the Runner drakes at all but you put him with another Muscovy drake and fighting will begin soon after. They are fighters . I have never been able to have any together at all. And my gander and drake fight too.

I have a another Pekin Drake who is the sweetest biggest baby I know (I don't think he even knows he's a he lol) He is such a baby he is close to the bottom of the pecking order. I know that drakes can fight with each other but do you think this could be the case with these two? Do you think that they could fight especially since he is such a big baby?

I really don’t know why my Muscovy drake pays no mind to the Runner drakes or their females. I just know he’d never allow another Muscovy drake to hang around I always had to keep my M drakes separated. All I can say is give it a try.
