    I have three Pekins and my stud Paul and his harem of two ducks...Lucy and Rosey won't take a break. They were hatched this summer, so they are about 5 or 6 months old. Is mating season for these guys all year long??...geesh!! [​IMG]

    "Use it or lose it" is the motto of most drakes.

    You all are really persuading me to get a drake (not so much). [​IMG]

    Amiga, I am having some serious - why do I want to hatch ducklings? - lately.
    I thought I knew something when I got these ducks, but the more I learn about breeding the less I know & it has become daunting to the point that I wonder what the heck I am doing with a drake.
