We had 13 mallard eggs, only 1 hatched on April 30th. We finally found someplace with ducklings born on May 13th and have brought 1 rouen and 1 pekin home to be friends with our lone mallard, only he's having none of it. He has imprinted on us, specifically my husband, as we were all he had for over 2 weeks. The babies are so cute and get along with each other fine, but our "big boy" is not being nice. At first he ran away from them, now he will tolerate them but will turn on them and grab them by the neck and drag them around. We've separated them but the big guy had a rough night, pacing all night and squeaking at the top of his lungs unless he could see my husband all night. Will they eventually get along? We're hoping by the time the babies are bigger, the mallard will be put in his place, but how do we navigate the next few weeks without having to keep them separated all the time?
