    i got five new Cayugas. 2 males and 3 females to add to my lone female. Both boys chase her so bad and pin her down and hold her there. They take turns doing it. They don’t try to mate with her. She cries and cries until I break it up. Will they keep doing this? Would getting rid of one male help? Any advice would help. Thank you.

    I would get rid of whichever one is more mean. You're duck to drake ratio is way off.Should be 1 drake to 4-6 ducks.They will keep doing it and the hen might get hurt too.
