I now have a flock of 9 ducks, 8 hens and a drake. I have a little one winged duck who is almost the smallest one in the flock. But lately she is acting like a monster duck. I would have expected this behavior in the spring, but not at this time of year. She is constantly trying to get the attention of Virgil, the drake. She is doing the head bobbing to one side thing near him. She is VERY vocal lately too. She does not want any other ducks near him. And she is picking on my little mallard also, being very antagonistic and also being very dominant, mounting her and being very rough. What is up with this? The whole season has been strange. The laying pretty much stopped months ago, except for two of them. I have pretty young ducks and most of them should still be laying or should have been through out the summer. And this behavior of Vanessa's is just odd. Anyone else seeing spring behavior in their ducks now?
