Re: Bullying drake

Ideally I need to put my roof back on, it was destroyed back when storm Brian hit and I’ve still not going round to fixing it up. It’s on my very long list of things to do. There’s a small pond in the run as well which doesn’t make it any better especially as the girls fly round the water causing ti...

Re: Bullying drake

That’s the problem I have rubbish drainage. Going to have a look at the mesh and look up the bark. Thanks very much for all your help 😊

Re: Bullying drake

While I’m here, does anyone have any tips on the runs flooring? While I’m at work they stay in the run but it’s like a swamp whenever it rains with how compacted the mug has got. Someone mentioned on another forum that bark was good to put down for them but I’m worried about their feet. I’m consider...

Re: Bullying drake

Yeah I have no grass anymore but the dogs don’t help that either because one of mine likes to scratch about after having a wee. Which the ducks love! Lol To be honest I’m just happy to see Maude happy again. She’s got her voice back which I’m sure the neighbours won’t be pleased about. Especially at...

Re: Bullying drake

He’s not even 1 yet 😭 he’s 1 in May. So I’ve got 3 more year of this then? Lol I just can’t believe how much it’s all changed so fast from them all living nicely together to this. I certainly wasn’t expecting this. Do you think after breeding season he’ll accept Maude back into the group? I could ha...

Re: Bullying drake

Well I’ve had to let him out of the enclosure today to clean out the coops so I boxed in my girls with loads of stuff out the shed, so he could roam round the garden whilst I cleaned. One of my dogs was on the garden and Melvin attacked him! He’s a German pointer so quite a big dog! He’s quite lucky...

Re: Bullying drake

I’ll be feeling guilty if I have to rehome him, cull him or keep him penned till autumm so I’ll not be winning either way. He’s a lovely looking duck too, he’s beautiful. Today’s task is to sort a new pen out for him. The pen he’s in now has the pond in which my girls don’t have access to while he’s...

Re: Bullying drake

My Mabel is quiet and bit of a pushover. My bossy girl was Maude but she’s the one who’s being bullied. She’s top duck when she’s just with the girls but when he’s near she’s a completely different duck. Mildred is my sassy one. I love their personalities. I’ve had a suggestion today to rehome by gi...

Re: Bullying drake

I didn’t end up letting him out yesterday so i did it today while the sun was out. It all went brilliantly for 20 minutes. I heard my girl literally screaming so ran outside to find the drake had pinned her into a corner while pecking at her eyes. I split them up but he was at her every time she wen...
