I have a male and female pair that are around a year old. The female had two female ducklings around two months ago. I began putting them outside together and suddenly my male has been trying to breed the two month old ducklings. They alarm me of this by screaming as loud as they can and as soon as I rush over the male leaves them alone. The four of them have been together for about three weeks now but starting a few days ago the male has tried to do nothing but mate with the ducklings. I don't like to keep my ducks in the barn, I want them free during the day so I am not really wanting to separate them. Will this settle down soon or am I just going to have to separate them? He's not really ripping feathers out of the ducklings but they start screaming. (They are in separate pens at night girls in one, my boy in the other). Is this just how it is until he gets things figured out? He's never acted like this before. Thanks for any help you can give me!
