    MY DUCK IS SO ANOYING! he is a Khaki Campbell and will be 32 weeks this weekend i have raised him from 1 week old he is a male and ther is no other ducks with him he sits out the front with the cats, he is getting a habbit of biting peoples feet and its getting worse every 1 runs from him and i tell them not to because its turning into a game for him i dont no if its hormones or what is ther anything i can do to try and stop him from biting every 1s feet because its starting to realy get to me as i have to put up with it unlike every 1 else..

    IF you let him get a grip of you he will sit down and wiggle his bum this is wher i think its hormones because he is a male

    He needs some ducky lady friends.. Sounds like he's trying to mate with anything that moves. Like your feet.. [​IMG]

    You have to show him that you have dominance over him. The next time he bites you put a hand on his back and push him to the ground gently and hold him there for a minute. Make sure he cant turn his head back to bite you. It took me a week of this and now none of my drakes even think about biting anyone anymore.

    Quote:Give this a try . He is trying to mate with your feet. Since he is imprinted on you, he regards you as his hen. Everyone else are just others that he thinks he might be able to 'get'.

    my male is getting aggressive like that too. he used to be really shy but now that my girl started laying eggs and theyre both getting to that age he has this attitude problem. i'm also sure it's the hormones. you really do have to show dominance and let him know each time he does it that it is not ok. getting him a little girlfriend will also calm him down just like with any other teenage boy lol. he has some kind of frustration [​IMG]

    I would be frustrated too if I were a lonely male duck.

    I sympathize with you!!! My khaki campbell drake does the same thing. He even attacked me the other evening when I put their food in the pen. But, I surprised him and grabbed him by the throat and held him to ground like the previous poster suggested. I had read about it once on here before. It worked. He hasn't messed with me at all since.

    BUT, he still chases our Great Dane away, and runs our poor little American Eskimo up the steps. She's scared to even go to the bathroom in the yard now. He even jumped up one time and grabbed ahold of what my Great Dane has left after his "vasectomy". [​IMG] Ha!!! And we have hens! I think he just has an attitude problem.

    I do think in your situation, the pinning him down thing might work though. Guess you just have to show him who's boss.
