    I have a female Pekin duck who's partner in life was a Khaki Campbell. When he disappeared we found another mate ( a Pekin). They seam to hang around together with no signs of affection. The are in the same run as my 3 hens 1 rooster. They have a kiddie pool to swim in. They've been together for 2 months. Will the eventually get more cozy?

    It may take some more time. Sometimes ducks are only affectionate with ducks they were raised with

    Well make sure he doesn't start going after your hens, that will be fatal.

    I had a drake who was much more interested in my chicken hens than in his ladies.
    It was not easy to manage.
    He has since moved on.
