Duck mating

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I got an up close and personal look of what it looks like when the drake mounts the female. I noticed that the drake was way off the mark from the female's vent.
They've been doing this for quite a while now. They are 5months old. Is there something wrong with the drake's plumbing or are they just young and still in the process of figuring this out?

From what I read here, it takes some time for them to figure it out.  But I also read that they will keep trying.

Please consider adopting rescued ducks.

People often ask if they should "put down" a bird that has suffered major injuries.  In my experience, birds appreciate the opportunity to recover.  Ducks have an amazing ability to heal, even from injuries that appear to be catastrophic.

My drake and duck successfully were able to make babies at seven months. I'm sure yours will learn soon!
