I've combed the threads looking for someone with a similar problem but haven't come across it yet.
I have one young Muscovy drake--Jiminy, and two Muscovy hens--Blossom and Xochitl (So-chee). that are just a year older than the drake. He is all over one and never the other. I can't figure out why not. We got this particular hen as a sort of rescue from another person's flock. The rest of her flock was ostracizing her--not allowing her to nest or brood and trying to starve her out. And she had flesh wounds on her shoulders from the other hens picking on her.
When we picked her up, the couple selling her offered us her sister (Blossom) and a duckling (Jiminy now full grown into a Juggernaut) so we took the whole lot and everyone is very healthy and happy. However, Jiminy shows absolutely no interest in Xochitl. I've seen her try to entice him to mate but no success. He and Blossom are at it every time I turn around but poor Xochitl is off by herself. To make matters worse, Blossom and Jiminy have a duckling now and they hang out together and Xochitl just stays away. She did go broody back in February but we were trying to have a look at the eggs to see if they were fertile but the next day she abandoned the nest. Before this, they were all a happy little group that did everything together.
I've thought about getting either some fertile eggs or days old ducklings for her but not sure if that would work. What do you think?
If anyone has had experience with this I'd love to hear from you. Thanks :)
