How old do Muscovy drakes start mating?

    I've had my muscovy drake for about 2 months now, and was supposed to be 5 months when I got him. He's twice the size of my 2 females but has no interest in mating with them? I can't seem to find anything on google and one of the hens in currently sitting on eggs.
    Any help would be much appreciated :)

    it depends on the duck really when his hormones kick in he should be like an engine, he 7 months now? Ive had males mate at ages 4 months up to waiting till 8 months old, females can tend to start earlier though when it comes to breeding
