Hi I have 6 ducks. 1 male Muscovy, 1 male mallard, 2 female mallards, and 2 female muscovies. Right now I think something might be happening with the social hierarchy but it’s concerning me because my male mallard is normally very much part of the group and for the last week he has been sitting inside the duck house while everyone is outside. When I visit him he is very much himself, and he will take food and is grooming himself fine. He looks totally healthy from my perspective. The reason why I think something is going on with the social pack is because when I put him out with the other ducks, my two female muscovies start attacking him and everyone gets worked up and he goes back inside or they chase him inside. They have all lived together for 5 years so nothing new has happened. He’s usually the second from the top. My male Muscovy is top dog. But right now it seems like the male mallard is on the bottom of the pack. Just wondering if anyone has had anything like this happen and how long it could last. I just want to see him out and happy again.
