    My husband, who is a man of few words, just came in and announced, "it looks like a prison shower scene in the drake house". Sure enough....yep, guessing it is time to get rid of a couple of drakes before someone gets hurt/killed. [​IMG]

    How many males and females do you have?

    Not enough....they (drakes and hens) are separated. 3:3. But the 'bachelor pad' approach isn't working either. Amazes me how aggressive they are.

    First lesson of new duck owner....do not get straight run ducklings!

    Yes, they can be VERY aggressive. I hope that everything works out.
