Yep he really thinks DH is another drake.

Another thing that really helped my drake was when he turned 2 months old we went and got him 3 female scovy's of his very own. It really isn't a good idea to raise a drake on his own they need that female ducks to release some of the pent up hormones that are racing through their bodies. He now has 6 females so he is very busy. Are you sure Ralphy is a drake? because females can become bity too.

Oh my yes Opie loves for me to hug and smooch on him. especially when Mating season is over. He gets enough smooching when that is going on. lol

Thats so funny, im new here, reading threads.... my youngest son is 18 months old and my husband and I named him Opie. Something uniqur is what my husband wanted. Never thought id see it anywhere else. ūüėć
