Mating, But No Eggs

My Runner drake has been mounting with Pekin duck, who is a willing and bossy partner, but it's been more than two weeks and I haven't found a single egg. Is it possible that he's just matured faster than she has? Or should I be concerned about her?

Was she laying before she was getting mounted? Are they free ranging or confined?

She wasn't laying before and they free roam during the day and are confined after sundown.

A friend suggested they were practicing or going at it for the fun of it and I was thinking surely they wouldn't be practicing this much. This morning they've both been very protective of a specific bush, so I suspect it won't be long.
