    I posted about him before.
    He's about six months old, I raised him from the day he hatched. I got him some lady duck friends last week. He's still pretty mean, and will chase me and nip. I can't go into his cage to change food and water without him attacking my hands.

    I'm worried for other people. He generally only chases me, but I don't want him to start being mean to others. My neighbors have to watch my flock next month. How can I try to make him more nice? When he bites I just pick him up and hold him.

    Well there are a lot of supposed ways to make them nice but none of them work it's just his personality and you can't change that. If I were you I would get rid of him but I don't tolerate mean animals but you may

    Unfortunately, I agree. Either you work around him, or get him gone....

    He sees you as being below him..He has gotten away with his behaviour so has no reason to change..Your part of his flock...You either redirect the behaviour or get rid of him...
