Hi there

Has anyone had the above "problem"? I have 3 ducks and 1 drake but when I put new water in their water bowls every now and then my smallest duck Indy and my biggest duck Two-tone start at it. Indy starts first with her head bobbing, Two-tone gets on top then the other female Berle tries to get in between. Big Bird just looks over them!
I'm not worried about it but has anyone else seen this behaviour? Why do they do it especially when there is a very randy male near by!?

Don't worry it is a common thing. It is the pecking order and the top duck in the flock letting them know whose boss.

Thanks for that. I had a feeling it was. All ducks seem to do is eat, drink, poo and tell each other who's boss! But they're still so cute and funny :P
