    Hi all!!

    I have had 2 ducks for over a year now. Male n female. They are about 14-15 months old. 6 weeks ago only 1 egg hatched. He/she is pretty big now.

    I have had Rocky in my bathroom but have been bringing him i have only been letting him hang out with mom because when i let the drake out he runs after Rocky attacking.

    Rocky has been out with mom now for about 5 days free range. Drake has been in pen, but mom n rocky sleep and eat right next to it.

    I was hoping it he would get use to his son, yet he is still attacking. How can i get Dad over this?

    Wish I knew, but you are doing well by keeping them separate for now. Some ducks seem particularly insecure. Bean (drake) seems fine until Vier or Fünf get in his face, then he picks on Romy.[​IMG]
