Hello ALL! I just got my first ever Blue Swede ducks! Yeah!! Thanks to Helmstead! OK....a few questions: We thought we picked out a drake and two hens. The flock we pulled them from had been over breeding and the hens all had bald patches on their necks, so that seemed pretty easy. Pick 2 with bald spots and one w/out. Many of the Drakes lost their drake feathers during the catching. However, one hen looks like she is mounting the drake. Is this normal? Or do I have a dominate hen with 2 other hens? Is ther a way to sex them w/o a drake feather? Also, any suggestions on keeping the smell down? I have a baby pool that we dump and refill 2x a day, but the area that they poop in really reeks. It seems to be contained to the area right by the pool. Thank you!
