    I have 2 female pekin ducks, that were born around April. They have always been fairly skittish, but now the one will lay down in front of you, put her wings out a little, and lift her butt up. I am pretty shure she wants a boyfriend pretty bad, but I have no drakes right now. Is this a sign she is going to lay soon? Will she keep this up until I finally have a drake? or will she settle down over time? Thanks!!

    Hard to say if and when she will settle down. Based on my runners, I would say that within a few weeks you can expect some eggs.
