Hello from Pride Poultry Farm! We woke up this morning to do our daily routine and noticed that one of the ducks was attacked. (picture posted) It is a 7-8 week old black duck-runner mix. The sex is still unknown. I bought the duck from a local farmer who was unsure of the father. It clearly shows now that the father was black-duck since the mother was a runner. Strange breed I have in it. As you can see in the picture, it's feather were plucked from its back and no where else. The duck can walk,run. and swim just fine like before. This is where I need you help! First, I am unsure what the attack was. He is in a pen with other ducks (Pekin, Runners, Black Ducks, and Call Ducks) that are all the same age except for the 2 black ducks. The 2 black ducks I have are a week older than the one attacked and they are mean. I don't know if it is showing who the alpha is, breeding, or another predator. None of the other ducks were hurt. Second, should I seperate the attacked duck, or the other 2 older ones, or both in different pens. Thank you!
