Depends. SOME breeds perform the deed whilst swimming.
Many ducks don't need a pool or a pond at all, for ANY reason other than to dabble in because they're ducks. Just a little dishpan of water to play in will suffice for play purposes.
So, guess it depends on which ducks you're considering.
Nope. In fact , as I type im looking out the windown to see my swede mutt drake standing on the back of my magpie hen in the front yard, lol
Runners do not seem to need water at all for that.
My Ancona and Harlequins prefer to be in the water but they mate out of the water as well. So really depends on the duck I would think.
Hugo doesn't even care if there is a duck around. He even goes after my shoes.
So I guess I need to keep breeds separate if I want pure breeds. I thought about housing 2 pairs together and only letting out one pair at a time for pool time. But I guess that won't work. Thanks for your replies. Ducks can be so funny!
Today our Muscovies did it next to the pond.....does that count?
my scovies used to do it in my room duckie would wait till i got home and turned on the light to do his deed. then he'd walk around the bedroom with his doodle out and hissing. he was prolly saying "i am THE man" LOL
