So I was outside yesterday and saw my 2 new younger ducks playing in the pool. They are getting old enough so she should start laying any time is my guess. My main older drake has been mounting her for about a week or maybe two. The question is about the uh... boy she came with. He is the same age as her, so young but just coming to mating age. He has the slightest curl to his tail (barely there) very similar to my older drakes tail when he was young. He? has tried nipping at the girls necks but yesterday he was laying out flat in the pool acting very much like a girl duck begging for it. The voice of uh, him is in between the girls sharper quack and my drakes verrrry raspy quiet quack. Any chance he is a her? When do the tail feather curl time with the females being ready to mate? Should he have more of a curl at this age if he is a he?
