Ok the situation is this, i have a mixed flock, 2 black runners, 2 rouen (1 is a drake) and 2 pekin (1 is a drake). So the pekin has shown himself to be the dominant drake but he constantly acts aggressive towards all the other ducks. the worst of it is we believe he smothered one of the runner ducks. he has been forceful with mating before but since the runners never enter the water we didnt believe there any real danger of drowning, or in this case smothering. the rouen drake has never shown this level of aggression and is significantly smaller than the pekin drake (who is easily twice the size of the runner that was lost). Im pretty sure the need will be to cull out the pekin drake and keep only a one drake flock. Any thoughts or comments would be great.
