In the Brooder
- Aug 26, 2014
I have two Pekin Ducks, one male and one female (which was not intentional). My male was always super friendly and did not mind at all when any of my family held him. Then the female started laying eggs. He has gotten extremely aggressive. I seriously get "bit" by him daily. I have bruises on most of my legs and up my arms. I dont care where he is on the property as soon as I come off my porch he comes at me. I have to run to the pen and close the gate behind me just to clean it and give them fresh water. My female is as sweet as can be and will come up on the front porch to sit with us. The problem is when she does this he comes along and starts to "bite" me. It seems like the only people he is aggressive towards are my and my two daughters. He leaves everyone else alone. Is there anyway to stop him from this behavior? I remove the eggs as soon as Hook (my female) lays them. I am just going crazy with this duck chasing me all the time. I love him to death and I was hoping there was a way to stop this behavior. Dont get me wrong all my family and friends think it is hysterical to watch us run from a duck and have him chase us.
