About this time last year, I read an article about keeping garden ducks and wanted some. It took a while to convince my DH but he finally agreed. In March, I purchased two Khaki Campbell ducklings from the local feed store. The turned out to be one male (Cheeze) and one female (Kwackers). So after, I discovered this forum and started worrying that one girl wasn't enough. In August, I found a local source for eggs and tried hatching 7 eggs. My plan was to keep one or two additional girls. Only three ducklings hatched, two Khaki girls (Chip and Dip) and one 1/2 Khaki 1/2 Appleyard boy (Salsa). To my husbands dismay, I decided to keep them all. From the first time the two groups met, Kwackers has gotten along with the others but Cheeze has not. He clearly wants to be top duck and is a bully to the younger three. I kept him separated from the other four, with a fence, for a couple of months with a few hours spent with Kwackers every day. At night he slept alone in a dog crate in the enclosed duck run with the others. In the mornings. I would let him loose with the others for breakfast and then quickly separate him (so I could go to work) or he would start his bullying. A couple weeks before Christmas, it got cold (low 20s F), and Cheeze became extremely difficult to get away from the others. I decided to let them try being together. It was a Christmas miracle -everyone was getting along. Cheeze was nice to the girls (who are now 4 months old) and tolerated Salsa, although he chased him away occasionally. A week later, we went out of town for Christmas. When we returned (five days later), all was well but the balance of power had shifted, Salsa was now the boss. This lasted for one day and the two have been battling it out ever since. Salsa has had his eyes bloodied and both have missing and bent feathers but neither will quit. Cheeze is meaner but Salsa is heavier so they are pretty evenly matched. I have them separated and they try to fight through the fence. Is there any chance that they will ever get along? Should I let them fight it out? Has spring come really early? DH does not want more ducks so the only option would be to get rid of one or two of them. They have only ever had pools and are very tame, so finding a good home will be difficult. Of course, Cheeze is DH's favorite and Salsa is mine. Any ideas or opinions would be appreciated! Now, trying to fight through the fence! Salsa in the front. Cheeze behind the fence. Before Christmas when everyone was getting along.
