Hi! My double-crested Pekin drake is not mating his girls. He is *defensive through the fence* toward other drakes, but I've never *seen* him actually mount a hen. He's coming 3 yrs old (I think) and I don't remember getting any fertile eggs from his pen last season either. His 2 girls (non-crested) have started laying again and the first dozen eggs are clear (after 7 days of incubation).
Might he just be a dud? That would be a shame, because he's so pretty.

Ive never seen Tula mount a duck either. Hes stopped fighting now that William has put him in his place and has now moved on to the 7 week old drakes but they aint stoopid, they were chest pushing yesterday and William came over and ran Tula off as if to say ...hey I told you im the boss leave them alone. Sorry, this post is neither here nor there to help you with your problem

Hi Nicky!

It's possible!
It's all relevant.
'Dub' is the only double-crested duck I ever hatched. I never planned to breed for crested ducks, but some popped out from my non-crested Pekin pair. I thought he was neat.
