    Yes this is going to be weird but my 1 year old Pekin Duck always bites my toes (doesn't hurt) and does the mating action he would usually do in the pool with my other duck who sadly died about 5-6 months ago due to egg birth. When i cross my legs and sit on the grass with sandals on, he would jump onto my right leg and bite the corner of my other leg and do the mating action... If anyone knows why can they please tell me. I know he thinks that i'm his mate but is there a way to fix this?

    Drakes are highly testosterone driven. Can you get him several female companions?

    He needs at least 3 Hens.....Ducks are very social and he wont stop loving on you till he gets some hens....

    Mine used to jump up my back when I was sitting down and grab at my hair. Two more hens stopped that action. Now he has three hens on which to divert his unwanted attention :D

    Maybe you should consider giving him up if you cannot provide him other ducks for companionship. They really are very social creatures...I do not think I would ever keep just one goose or duck for this reason. [​IMG]
