    Hiya have'nt posted in awhile [​IMG] I have 3 Khaki Campbells Dora,Daphne & Daisy now about 13 weeks old and doing fine we've just aquired 3 more Khaki's about 5 weeks old Dora is acting like a mother (ish) to them, Daisy just ignore's the new additions but Daphne OMG! she is so agressive toward them several times now on supervised outdoor activity between the 6 of them Daphne literally "goes for the kill" shakeing her head, going low with her head and trying to seperate one from the group and trys to grab them round the throat what do I do?.
    Its got to the point the new 5 week olds are scared to go out! their fine with the other two it's just Daphne! She killed one of our Quail the other week and cannot be trusted her temper is beyond me? We've actually put her in the coop right now to seperate her altho I feel that maybe the wrong idea? but it's the only thing at the moment we can do so the new ducks can get outside and be ducks!
    Any advice much appreciated I'm personnally thinking one of 3 options take her to a farm we know to live, find another home for her? or try are best in "anger duck managment"? failing that well you know [​IMG]

    I would rehome her. Fastest and easiest way to solve the problem and insure your younger ducks safety (and your sanity!).

    Definitely take her to the farm!! What a murderess. I have 5 production hens that are like that. I have to watch them constantly!! I've warned them numerous times, as soon as my Rhode Island pullet's are laying heavy, they (production hens) are becoming chicken soup!! LOL! Really, I don't eat my own chickens/ducks...can't, I name them. LOL!
