    Hi
    I have 3 pairs ducks, all clipped. They live semi-wild between my large pond/duck house on land by pond.
    1 month ago we inherited a wild male duck. (Just appeared at easter.. Have called him Jesus...)
    No issues for us but hes bigger than our boys and is continually beating them up.
    I know its the time of year (!), but would anyone have any advice as i dont want my boys hurt
    Thanks

    you could try to run him off, but it may scare your ducks more

    hopefully he gets over it quickly, or your boys beat him up
