    I got three one year old female ducks three days ago. The Cayuga hen is coming after me every time I get near them or their coop. I had to put a bowl in front of her so she wouldn't get me yesterday. Will she get used to me? The previous owners never said she was mean. They said she is the protector. I don't like an aggressive bird. One good thing though...I'm getting a big green egg every day from her. :)

    Maybe she is taking on the role of drake since there isn't one? I'm far from a duck expert though. You should ask over on the duck forum. You'll have better luck there.
