I ordered a pair of female Pekin ducklings from McMurray last year. One of them was always smaller, but I just figured she was a "runt". Fast forward to the past few days. The smaller duck had been mounting the larger duck, and both were acting strange for days, leading up to my larger duck laying her very first egg on the 28th. Very exciting day!
(chicken egg on right for size reference)
She laid again the next day, but my smaller duck didn't, and was still continuing to mount her and act strangely. "She" had no curled tail feather, so I wasn't worried, until today when I actually saw her... well, "her" man bits. So Amelia is now known as Waldo. However, I got two ducks with the intention of having them be ornamental for my lake and to eat their eggs - not to raise ducklings! I called McMurray, but they were closed for the day. I have no idea if they'll help me, but even so, they'd probably just send me another duckling as a refund of sorts. What do I do with Waldo? Does anyone have a similar experience?
