My daughter's preschool class raised 6 ducklings last year and are now keeping them in a pond on school grounds. I'm not sure what breed they are. All I know is that they are big and white. I was chatting with a couple of the teachers today and they had concerns about some behaviors the ducks were exhibiting and I promised to ask you folks and see if you could tell me if any of this behavior was normal/abnormal and if there was anything they should be doing to stop any of it. 1) Laying eggs in the pond. The ducks recently started laying and most of their eggs seem to end up in the water. 2) The male seems to enjoy pecking open and eating the eggs that end up on the bank. 3) The male pecks at the females on the back of the head and has pecked a bleeding sore into the back of one lady's head. 4) There is one egg that for some reason hasn't been eaten or rolled into the pond. It has been on the bank for a few days. Wondering if it is still viable? I am assuming ducks can go broody like chickens? (None of these ducks are showing any signs of that) These ducks have a fenced in area with a large pond and what looks like a doghouse on the bank for shelter. I see the maintenance guy feeding them pellets of some sort - I assume some sort of duck food, but I never checked. Thanks for any input you folks have.
