I have seven ducks. Two are buff girls, three are WH girls and then two WH drakes. The two buff girls are a year plus and the WH ducks are this years hatch. Now for the problem. The one drake has become so rough with the buff girls and the smallest WH girl that they wont get in the pond. When they do he makes a beeline for them and will get on one of their backs, grab their head and dunk her while he attempts to breed her. Their feathers are torn and necks look so rough. Does he become Thanksgiving dinner? Suggestions? What is going on?

Thanks in advance!

I guess it depends on how attached you are to him. A drake being that aggressive with ducks would be dinner at our house. You could try to rehome him if drakes are sought after in your area but in the meantime you might want to separate them for a while, for the ducks sake.

Thanks for the advice. I guess I already knew this. Anyone in the Dallas area need a very pretty Welsh Harlequin Drake?

personally don't make him someone elses problem. An aggressive drake shouldn't be passed along for someone else to deal with. The definitely shouldn't be permitted to breed possibly passing on aggressive ways.
