ok, I finally got my fence 3/4 done around my pond. Yesterday was such a nice day, I had to let the ducks out of the hen house. Well I did, but now the Gander (Super African) that lost his mate 2 yrs. ago will not let the Drake near the female ducks....he guards all three of the hens carefully and when the Drake comes around he lowers his head and chases him off....has anyone else had this problem?? Should I lock the Goose up for awhile...I hate to do that because he has had full rein of the property for about 12 yrs. now. Also, the ducks are not going to the pond, I tried herding them towards it and they all go around the other way. I will post some pics. to show what I am talking about. I know how I hate to pull up the thread and not see pics..and besides I have promised pics..
