I've got two adult ducks, one just barely. She hasn't laid yet but her carbuncles are starting to redden and she's been caught sitting in the nesting box a lot looking all sooky and hopeful. However, every time my drake so much as looks at her, she scampers away. She's cute and polite about it, but she clearly doesn't like him. If he decides to chase her stronger, she flies away (she can fly, he can't) and lands on the roof and just stares at him. She's not mean at all or bitey.. she actually looks at him in a coy Marilyn Monroe-esque kind of way (haha her name IS Nancy Sinatra...) and doesn't let him at it. My new housemates said they notice whenever she sees him looking at her, she waddles off quickly or won't eat near him or gets on the roof or perches on the top of the frame for my halfbuilt coop. She's meant to be breeding with him, but nobody has ever seen it happen or anywhere near happening. She hasn't laid yet so I'm not terribly upset but this is going to be a problem when she does. We heard that sometimes ducks just don't let drakes mount them? And my flatmate said something about drake's having funny penii and ducks having funny cloaca so they can falsely mate? Anyone know of this? Anyway, if it comes down to it, what can I do? Play some Barry White in the henhouse at night? Give them a candlelit dinner? Teach Elvis how to woo a lady?
