    I have a Bourbon Red hen who hatched a duck egg this past spring. He (the muscovy duck) is full grown now. A couple weeks ago, I gave away 13 muscovy ducklings. The people were catching them and upset the rest of the poultry...afterward the hen attacked the duck and the fight was on! I am assuming the destress alls of the ducklings set her off? Now every time they see each other they attack each other? I have no idea what is going on here. I am keeping the hen turkey separate now as she is setting on eggs in the fenced in garden. But every time I let her out she goes after my male duck. Anyone else ever have this happen? Thanks in advance
