    Hello i need some advise. I have one male and two female 2 year old ducks. I recently got duckling they are about 1 month old and are actually larger then my male. My question is ever time i introduced the new ducks to the pen my male wants to pen them down and hold them they. They make alot noise. I dont think hes really hurting them. Will the male stop? Im pretty sure my duckling are female. I just feel so bad hearing the duckling male noise.

    I'm not sure I'm following, your 1 month old duckling is larger than the 2 year old male?
