I have one hen age 5 1/2 months and one drake of same age. He has begun fulfilling his male needs, but she is not yet laying. I assume she will begin laying soon. Am I correct? Am I going to have to get another hen, or do you think she will be able to handle being his only love? They are in with my chickens and get along just fine. Has anyone ever know a duck to try to mate with a chicken? Just curious.
