    I have 4 khaki Campbell ducks that I've had for about 4 weeks and we got them at tractor supply so I'm not sure how old they are maybe 5-6 weeks old but I have one that is biting another and has its bleeding some under the wing area. Is this common? I have separated two and two now. I'm thinking that I possibly have three females and a male maybe I know they are young. Please help guide me

    @tee1172 - welcome!

    So far so good, you are doing what a number of us would do - switch up the flock dynamics.

    I remember Zehn, when she was young, used to poke at her sisters, and she'd pull one breast feather to annoy them and push them around. sigh.

    She eventually settled down. Mostly the others just moved away from her.

    Is there room for the others to move away from Bitey Pants?

    I have them in a 100 gallon container in our basement so its not alot of room to get away from each other that is why i put two in the big dog cage. So do you think this might pass?
