Why can't you fence him off next to his friends? I've got an area all ready to go for when my 3 drakes get out of hand.

Last year I had to separate my 1 drake from his SIX girls. He was miserable running up and down the fence line all day. He had a divider in the pen too. Then I had the idea to put his best girlfriend in with him and life was so much better for everyone with those 2 being together.

Once the hormones calm down he can probably go back with the rest.

Only got two. I live in the city and we have a three bird limit. I'm already testing it with four ducks. And a chicken. I bought them all as babies and was hoping for all females. Ended up with two and two
