    Ducks are VERY social and do not do well alone........They need other Ducks....Sounds like you have a Drake and he is maturing and sexually frustrated.......He will need a Hen or three to keep him happy......


    Cheers!

    Sounds like he is imprinted on you! There are people who live happily with one house duck, but it depends on your lifestyle. Most of them work at home.
    Also, I have never heard of a situation where an imprinted duck is moved away from the house forever. I've heard of the duck being moved outside with other ducks, and the imprint may start to taper off. I've also heard of situations where the duck was made a house duck because it was so attached.
    I have also heard of boy ducks living alone, but if you work/leave home a lot, you may want to find him a friend.

    Moose pictures? [​IMG]


    Yeah, I would get him a friend, if your up for it. How long are you home everyday? Do you ever leave Moose alone? How does he react?

    I loffs him. Moose is so precious and adorable. He looked like he has a tail in that picture!

    How does he react to being alone?
