Hello fellow duck lovers, I have 6 Cayuga ducks that I got in March after years of having only Indian Runners. 2 males and 4 females. Recently I have seen one of the male ducks be seriously mean to female ducks while "forcing" them to mate. I realize the forcing is normal for ducks and they normally hold their heads under water, but this duck is grabbing their heads and smashing them on the ground! I'm very worried that he will end up killing a female or causing permanent brain damage. One of them is now limping (its not broke and no blood) but I'm sure its from an attack from this male. In addition, he is very mean to the other male duck, who mates with the females, but not in such an aggressive manner. Should I separate the mean one? Will he grow out of this behavior? Is there a way to change his behavior? Does anyone else have any helpful advice for dealing with this situation? My husband now wants to eat him for Thanksgiving (we don't eat our animals, they are pets...but) I hate to give him to someone else if he will cause harm to other ducks as well.
