    I have two Peking ducks and a few roosters will one of them tries to get it on with the ducks. The ducks don't like it and run from him. What do I do to stop this or what should I do?

    Separate them or eat the rooster? At least roosters mating ducks is not dangerous to the ducks. Drakes mating chicken hens is another story.
