    My pekins are 6 months old now the female is not laying yet, will she start soon?
    Do to mating my female has lost a bunch of fethers on her neck do I need to do anything about that?
    If things get wors do I need to get a hen saver? will a hen saver help a duck?
    Will my ducks only mate in seson or do I need to deal whith babys in the winter?

    How many drakes are mating the hen. Multiple drakes gang breeding a hen is a bad scenario.
