    So I gave my 2 pekin girls the pool today because of the heat, s I was giving the ducklings water when I hear a really odd quack noise. look over and find my one mounting the other like a drake, waggling her tail then seasing up and making an odd noise. I know for shure it snot a drake, is this normal duck behavior? I know females will mount for dominance, but will they try to mate then sease up and make an odd noise? was afraid she was going to drown the other for a minuet, but she would get her head up, never seen them do this befor, but have seen the other bite her head, and bob head.
