Muscovy's Mating???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This morning when DH went outside, he saw our new Muscovy's mating. Daisy really did not want it, but Daffy took it. Aren't they a little young? They are only 3 months. Our other batch of ducks did not start mating until they were 5 to 6 months of age. Is this normal for Muscovy's? Does anyone know?

Thanks in advance.... Tes

I am suprised you just saw it. Maybe it was the move and the rehoming that had them off. LOL Did he do the wing flapping dance first?

Oh goodness... so they are early maters... hmmm... when I did a search on it, it said that they do not reach sexual maturity until one year... I am so glad I have this board LOL

I had to run and ask DH LOL... he said no, he had just walked outside and he was grabbing her by the neck and mounting. I am going to watch for that though LOL I would say it does take its toll on them when rehoming. I missed it all sad So I guess I am going to have to watch closer!!!
