Hello,
We have a peahen that just had 2 peachicks hatch this past Saturday 7.4.2009. The first couple days our male Cayuga duck was just GREAT with her and the chicks, but on Monday morning he started attacking her, biting and pulling out her tail feathers. Now we have to keep them separated. I am hoping that someone knows what the problem is and if there is something else we can do.
Thank you in advance for any help.

No female ducks. We got the peahen and male duck together when they were babies 4 years ago and they have always been like brother and sister.

Also there are people who have big problems with sexually frustrated drakes. Like being great with the chickens for a long time and then all of a sudden they start trying to breed them, attack them and in some cases even kill the chicken/chickens. Get that boy some girls!

Quote:John, my runner drake, lived in harmony with 3 pullets after his buddy Tim died. He followed them everywhere, even waited under places when they roosted.



But then his hormones kicked in! That was many months ago. He has 4 ducks of his own but still goes after his chickens.
