For the past several days, I guess the hormones are kicking in for my Muscovies. They are going nuts! We hatched 7 ducks in the second week of June, and 6 of them turned out to be drakes! I only have one poor little female. She used to be the "boss" of the bunch (I think she was taking over as the mama), but now it seems as if the hormones are kicking in and the males are taking over. They are brothers and sister. One of the males seems to be trying to show he is boss now. I even saw him climb up on one of his brothers today like they were mating! For the past few days, they have been chasing after us and the kids. One came flying at me today, and another was chasing a woman down the street as she was jogging. I did a search, and I guess it is just their normal behavior since there are WAY too many males - but I don't know what to do?? Should I try to pen the female up by herself? There is no way I can get enough females to keep all of them happy. They free-range, and we were keeping them in a duck house at night to protect from predators, but for the last few weeks they have gone on strike. They were sleeping on the roof of our house, and tonight I saw most of them way up high in a big tree in a neighbor's yard behind our house. I don't want to fear for my children to go outside. They were so sweet! We held them and fed them and watched them hatch, and now it seems like they are turning on us. I read some posts about showing them we are dominant by holding them down, but what should I do about my wacked out duck ratio?
