We have a problem with our call duck drake. He was raised for the first 3 months with the indian runners and ancona. About 6 weeks ago we introduced two little call duck girlfriends to him and set them up in their own yard with a nice pool and all. Our little drake just pines away for the big flock who are about 25 yards away and he refuses to swim (he used to love the water). He just paces along the fence. The two little girls used to follow him, but now have started attacking him. He is scared of them. We removed the more aggressive female and now the less aggressive one just follows the drake around. When we tried to reintroduce the more aggressive one, the less aggressive one suddenly started attacking the drake. Should we put them all back with the big flock? If we do, will the call drake just pine away again when we divide everyone up for mating season or will his mating instincts take over? We just don't know what to do.
