Ok, this is reaaalllly strange. I have 8 indian runner ducks and run all over the place. I have a Pekin that is lame and recently the runners (4 female and 4 males) have been attacking my Pekin who's name is Weebles. It's the boys and I know it's spring but they are relentless. So bad that I have to pen Weebles all day and away from the crazed runners. I can understand that this may seem normal being spring and all. What I find super strange and frightening is the fact that 3 runners went into a chicken coop (dog house style) where a mother hen and her babies were. Those runners were terrorizing the hen and babies. They wanted those babies! I ran them all out of there and later found another one that went inside. Never have these ducks EVER been in this coop. This coops has been in that spot for 3 yrs which is longer then these ducks have been ducks and sits just over a foot off the ground. It was so bad I had to lock up the mother hen and the babies because I couldn't trust the ducks. I also put fencing around that coop to keep the ducks away from the chicks. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this before? I find it very odd. Have my ducks gone mad? It's kind of creeping me out.
