    We have 10 mallards 14 weeks old. There are 3 drakes and 7 hens. One drake has developed a tail curl already and I am curious does this make him the dominant drake. The other two have not developed the curl. The 3 drakes are turning to greenheads quickly now. We have not seen any agression from the drakes to each other yet. We do expect once breeding starts it will happen though.

    Huh, not sure.

    Some drakes just don't have very curly tails I've found.

    Interesting proposition. [​IMG]
