    So I got an up close and personal look of what it looks like when the drake mounts the female. I noticed that the drake was way off the mark from the female's vent.
    They've been doing this for quite a while now. They are 5months old. Is there something wrong with the drake's plumbing or are they just young and still in the process of figuring this out?

    From what I read here, it takes some time for them to figure it out. But I also read that they will keep trying.

    My drake and duck successfully were able to make babies at seven months. I'm sure yours will learn soon!
