    If you want to keep the different breeds from mating then you'll have to separate during mating season. other times of the year they can all be together. [​IMG]

    My first thought is, for some drakes, 366 days a year![​IMG]

    It varies by breed, as far as I can tell. Mr. Bean is still hopping on top of Carmella and Hazel, and this started just two days before Valentine's Day.

    He has lost a little ardor, but is far from done.

    Amiga is right, started here in Jan. this year but usually doesn't begin till late march and usually winds down in late September. That is great that you are getting all your research done before hand. I applaud you, and cute lil lovebird too.
