    When does a Pekin drake start to mate? Is it around 5 months old?

    All young Drakes will start mounting at around 4 to 5 months old...It happens usually after the juvenile molt...Not that they are very good at it though;)....My young Drakes mount once they get into the kiddie pool and they get all excited....:)

    Best wishes....

    Cheers!
