Indian runner duck help!
« on: April 23, 2013, 23:54 »
Hope you don't mind me posting on here. I've been looking everywhere for some advice with my indian runner ducks. I had 3 males, sadly one passed away a few weeks ago. The 2 males which are left have become really aggressive. Before the the lil guy passed away, 1 would always run up to you and peck your feet but then lose interest and the other 2 would just hang back. But since 1 has passed away they are both really aggressive and won't calm down, even having issues at night trying to close them in. I know part of it is maybe the time of year? I was hoping to get a few more ducks as they looked a bit lonely but just a bit concerned they would attack it/them. I would be really grateful of anyone's help! Thank you. Sarah

I don't know a lot about ducks but I would have thought that keeping 2 males together would not be a good idea.  Even if you had a couple of females I think you would have a problem.  Ducks will try to mate with anything and everything so you would be better getting the balance of male to female right.   :)
