Good morning, BYC! Does anybody know what's happening here? My Rouen gets in my Pekin's face and sometimes even pushes the Pekin's head down (as seen at the end of the video) or just nips at the Pekin's mouth. He typically does this when the Pekin is squawking at me for whatever reason.

He (my Rouen) also bobs his head, like he is in the video, at everyone pretty frequently in all types of situations. Does anyone know what head bobs mean? 😆 They are my only two ducks, and both are male, if that matters. 🤷🏻‍♀️

How many ducks do you have? Is the pekin a female?

Head bobbing from either gender usually means they want to mate, like Duck mommy said.
she said they are both males i believe, but my drakes and hens head bob at everything including each other, me, and the boys will even do it at each other
