Please can anyone help me with a problem I am having with my ducks. I had 3 ducks and 2 drakes for a few months living free range on a large pond. Everything was perfect. Lots of eggs to eat and no fightling. I decided to let one duck hatch some eggs. She hatched 5 ducklings. Everything went great. Still no fighting. The babies grew up and are now young adults (not yet producing eggs). One day the boss drake decided he hated the young guys. He really attacks them and drives them away. They spend all their time hiding away from the lake in some bushes. He goes looking for them by himself and attacks them. Now the other drake has decided this is fun and joins in. They are really rough with them and if then are in teh water I worry they will drown one when they both pile on top. Will this eventually stop? I want them all to live as one large flock. All the new ones are females. They have become so shy now. They have even become afraid of my chickens and won't eat any food if they are there. Will they eventually get braver and stand up for themselves? Perhaps when they start to lay eggs they will want to be with the drakes? Help please!
