Do domestic ducks mate only during a season, or all year like chickens?

    I recently got some Khaki Campbell ducks, who are now about four months old. My drake has started to mate with the females now, and I am wondering if these ducks only mate during a certain season, or all of the time, like roosters will do. Khaki Campbells are big egg layers, and lay all year (correct me if I am wrong on this fact), so do they also mate all year, or only during the mating season for ducks?

    Ducks mate all year..The mating season is when the Drakes get hormonal and really breed..Aggressive behaviour towards other Drakes and over breeding of Hens can happen...
