    I've recently got another duckling and he is only small, but my larger drake keeps picking on him. He grabs him by the foot and bites him on the head. I know this is normal for a drake to do this and it should pass, but is there anyway to try and prevent it.

    Keep the duckling away from the drake, he could very easily kill it.
