Hi everybody. My flock of Indian Runner/Black Swedish is about 17 or 18 weeks old now. I have noticed in about the last week that one of the males has been head bobbing and trying to mount the female. She just swims away and after a few minutes he gives up. The problem is that I have 3m and only 1f and have been reading horror stories about males fighting to the death or even drowning the female and raping her. I have seen nothing in their behavior that scares me, so far, but I am afraid of what could happen. I saw a thread somewhere on here that suggested that it depends on the ducks themselves. Is this something that I just need to keep an eye on? I do spend a fair bit of time just sitting on the porch watching the flock because they are so entertaining. Thanks for any advice. I should add that they are free all day.They are penned at night for 8 or 9 hours while we are asleep.
