We have 9 chick hens and 2 male ducks- live together since born it's 6 months later and our peking ducks getting the hens down biting the hens necks.Are they trying to hurt them as chicken never yell.?

No. they are not trying to hurt them. The drakes see the hens as "their flock" they are all coming into mating age. They are trying to make the hens submissive. It will not result in anything but a few ruffled feathers and some loud quakes and clucks but they will catch on soon enough and stop bothering the hens. Getting a rooster will also put an end to the ducks confused cross species behavior.
