    my male duck nod its head like a normal male he runs at the back of a female but the female just walks away and the male duck misses.
    why is it like that? is he being rejected or he just doesnt know how to mate?
    he doesnt bite the neck also
    (this happens on land) because i dont have a pond [​IMG]

    How old is he? If he's this spring's hatch, he probably isn't mature enough.

    You can get a kiddie wading pool pretty cheaply to give them a bit of a bath, its really good for them and does help them to mate.
