The ducks have been mating for months now. She tried to mount one of the ducks this afternoon (because they have access to swimming water after the winter they were really really excited), and then he mounted a duck! I just wonder why he doesn't mount her, they are obviously attached to each other, they graze together, when one takes off the other flies with them, and they sleep next to each other at night.
I bet it won't be much longer. Geese really bond. My ganders all have their favorite hens, and they are the dominant ones of course. With just the pair your fella just isn't feeling pushed as mine are with a larger flock. We have 15 geese, there are 3 ganders for the 3 breeds. My Embden and American Buffs have really comingled, The Chinese also have seemed to stay with the breed. Theres a different language, Buffs and Embden are more similar than Chinese.
My only thought, can you separate them a week? That will really encourage your gander. Geese need companionship.
