    I have 2 female ducks and 1 drake. My oldest female (phoebe) has become very aggressive in the past week or so. She is mounting my other female (louise) which I would assume is because of dominance but she is turning her tail like a drake. Phoebe is attacking my chickens when she has been with them her whole life and never has attacked them before. She loves when my Drake bites on her and chases him around but struts for louise. I'm very confused with her behavior. And today Phoebe has begun mounting my drake. What do I do to get her back to normal?

    The duck in the pool is phoebe (the moody one) I'm also sure because she was laying eggs prior to me getting louise.

    The duck in the pool is phoebe. She also laid eggs prior to me getting the other female. I'm just very confused by her behavior.

    She had started this thing where she stands next to my other ducks flares her tail and bounces her wings up and down? What does that mean?
