    Probably just doling out discipline for the lower members of the flock,perhaps she's getting ready to lay/nest/sit. If she's not being particularly violent, I wouldn't be too concerned. It IS the beginning of mating season for many, and hormones will be going crazy. If anything I think it's best that your top duck is a mellow, calm personality. It will help keep the flock balanced.
