    I've looked online and I've found information about roasting the duck, but I have tied out my drake for the day. He has been chasing our new (six week old) ducks and has injured the little hen in the form of a blood blister on the back of her head. This is both for her safety and his own since the ducks have been adopted with the goslings by our gander. He has water and his hen is with him, but I can't stand the sexual assault in the yard any longer. Can anyone tell me if this is safe enough for him? I'm keeping an eye on him, but I want to know if this is totally verboten.

    From his viewpoint it probably beats being roasted. [​IMG]

    He thought he was for sure. I had to carry him out to the barn to find my rope. He was shaking like a leaf...
