With the warm weather we have been having my ducks are a bit confused, the mating has already begun which means eggs will soon follow, but this morning my 2 youngest drakes 1.5yrs and 9 month old got into 2 fights, first one I let them go at it but they were too close to the fence and were beating their wings up on the fence so i broke it up, Then about 15 min later they went out it again, my dh said the only way to get it settled is to let them fight it out so we stood and watched, no one was bloody which it would have been hard for me not to step in at that point it was more a wrestling match, and finally my older got the younger on his back which made the younger run with the older on his trail he got the younger down and pretty much just held them there for a few min and just kind of nibbled him not hard at all just like he was making a point, then it was over. I would never let my boys fight till one was severely injured but I'm thinking this was the best thing to keep the peace in the flock. The younger has had an attitude which got adjusted this morning. Boy I am not ready for this. LOL The look on everyones face was priceless though, all the girls just stood and watched kinda like a cheering squad. The the winner had 8 girls hanging out around him the other 2 didn't seem the least bit interested. they have been through too many seasons of this I guess.
