    I have 6 Khaki Campbell ducks that are 18 weeks old; 2 males 4 females. Up until 2 weeks ago everyone got along and now the males are singling out 1 female. They are chasing her away and they both mate her in the pond. They are free ranged with a very large pond how do I fix this problem?

    Separate the poor girl from the males. Give her a break. And you may have to lose a male, or get 4 more females.

    [​IMG] Male ducks are the rapists of the bird world. As previously suggested, separate them to give her a break. Getting more girls might/might not help. Sometimes, they will just have their favorites. A better ratio would be 1 male to 3-4 girls. Good luck.
