    My drake, AutE, weaves his head and neck side to side, turning his head sideways - much like kids who dance in the street. His neck feathers are ruffled during this show which occurs several times a day. He's 4 months old. Is he being amorous or dominant? He's not harassing the girls but they are 1 month younger if that means anything. Is my baby growing up?

    Aw! He's getting all lovey! My duck (hen) does a head nod dance where she circles me and my boyfriend. Singing the whole time.
    She's growing up and it's getting warmer.
    Spring fever!

    Thanks all. Now he's bugging the girls. I guess Valentines Day comes just in time.
