My Welsh Harlequin pair appear to be getting along REALLY well. They mate several times a day. I observed them several times and here is what I see: They both start head bobbing, the female lays down, stretches out her neck and flattens her back and starts honking. The males mounts, holds on to her neck and it over in several seconds. Immediately after, he RUNS with his head down for a couple minutes and then returns to normal behavior. Does this sound like normal mating? Does it really only take a few seconds? Also these two were hatched last spring in 2012 and the female has not yet started laying, which I know is typical. How do I know if he is being too rough with her? She doesn't ever protest, in fact she seems to be the one initiating it. Anyone else watch this happen? Maybe I am way too bored and need to find something else to do with my time.
