    So I have 2 miniature silver appleyards a duck and a drake. The duck does this weird dance sort of thing. She walks around in circles bobbing her head up and down, she quacks loudly whilst doing it.

    Anyone have any idea why she does this??

    It means she really likes the drake.

    That is a courtship dance display......Your Hen is showing your Drake that she is interested in him.....

    Duck love.....

    Cheers!

    Oh ok that's good as she doesn't have much choice. I saw them mating today, my husband was worried he didn't like her as we hadn't seen them mating before [​IMG]

    You have nothing to worry about.......Just watch that he doesn't over breed her......lol.......usually with only two Ducks it's not an issue........


    Best of luck........


    Cheers!
