Hello, I recently lost my runner drake to a hawk. He was a ham, and a joy to have around. However, that now leaves our pekin/runner drake alone. He has always been a pest, but now that he's alone with only the chickens, he's unbearable. He attacks our dog, stalks our windows, and is brutal with my husband and I. Although he allows the children to carry him all over the yard and love on him, I think it's only a matter of time before he turns on them as well. So, here's the deal. He bites my ankles, hard, and chases the dog away from me. He doesn't give up. I can't walk, since hes' underfoot, and have resorted to just carrying him along when I'm in the yard. We often hold him down, and hold his head to the ground for a few minutes until he gives up, trying to assert dominance. After doing this several times, he usually walks away. Until, the next time. It's really out of control. There were a lot of jokes about his ankle fetish at first. It's just not funny anymore. Do you think there's anything that can be done? I've had ducks for some years, and have not experience this before. Do we just cull him? And, I have to admit, while we do this with chickens, I really don't know the best way to do this with a duck? Thoughts on that would help, too. I do appreciate your help.
