Hi All, I have a problem with my ducks and I'm hoping someone with a better understanding of duck breeding behavior can help. I have a khaki girl who is constantly under attack by my drakes. Gang rape big time. This started roughly two weeks ago. We are heading into fall here so I'm thinking they should be toning their ardour down a bit. And it is just this one duck they go after. They are breeding the other girls too but not like this. This poor thing is under constant attack. After a few days of it with no sign that they were going to stop I pulled her and isolated her in a crate for a week + hoping that whatever was going on would tone itself down. All the drakes did was stand outside the crate and watch her. She was bruised and had the feathers on her neck missing when I put her in the crate. I think they would evenutally have killed her just through the pummelling she gets when these gang attacks occur. This morning after a week I let her out again and they immediately ran for her, left their breakfast to all breed her one after the other. She wants to be out and clearly it is not fair for her to live her life in a dog crate but the poor thing was running and hiding under the chickens nesting boxes within 5 minutes of my letting her out this morning, Thoughts anyone? What is it about this one girl that brings this on?
