    I switched out the itty bitty duck pond and put our 3 rouens into a regular sized kiddie pool last night. (Maybe a foot deep)
    They are all about 7-8 months old.
    When we were getting ready for bed I heard a sound like somebody grinding the heck out of an old truck's gears, but with a duck-like overtone to it.
    I checked on them and the drake had a smug expression and the one girl was in the pool with him looking sheepish.
    Are they old enough to be breeding? Neither girl is laying eggs. [​IMG]

    They can have sex way before they are even ready to lay eggs. Even though yours are old enough for laying eggs.
