I hope some one can help me with this problem. I got 4 baby ducks from TSC last spring. As they got older I realized I had 3 males & 1 female, but they were all getting along fine so I kept them together. About a week ago the boys started running her all over & trying to mate. It was too much for her so I separated her & put the 3 boys together in their own pen. The boys have a 12X12 horse stall at night & get free range for several hours during the day. But now the boys are fighting with each other. Pulling out all the head & neck feathers, slamming into each other and generally trying to dominate each other. So now I have each of them separated also. However, I can't continue having 4 ducks in different areas as I don't have that much space. If I just put the boys back together & let then "duke" it out (with no female in sight) will they eventually find a "pecking order' or will they continue bulling each other until they get hurt or killed? I'm desperate because I can't keep them the way they are acting & don't really know how to re-home them. And putting them in the "dinner pot" isn't an option. HELP PLEASE....
