    Well I'm pulling my hair out my favorite duck (Thunder) has become a big bully! He picks on my other male duck (Jumpy)chases him all over the place biting him,:( now I see him starting to pick on one of my female's.(Yippie)the other female (Yappie) is his little girlfriend so he does not bother her and she is always by his side.Any ideas what I can do to make him stop being a bully.

    Maybe try separating him for a few days.

    And after a couple days, if that doesn't work, try inviting him to dinner [​IMG]

  5. What seems to be happening is your one Drake has chosen a Hen as his own.....He is protecting his right to breed her by chasing off the other two Ducks.......If you can separate them for a week? Things might settle down?

    Silly hormonal Drakes!!!!


    Cheers!
