Finally, my fears of my blind drake being unable to mate have been disproven!! He finally mounted one if my females! A couple questions though! I saw his penis but its been freezing, a couple weeks ago, there was a week that was unusually warm and one of my females started laying eggs. Could he have started releasing his mating hormones then? (I thought males penises fall off, right?) I also for the first time saw my females doing the "mating" deal. Is this them practicing? Or dominance, or both? Also, only one of my ducks is laying. He bred with a duck who looked a little low today but had never laid an egg. Does this mean she's finally bearing an egg? Or does a drake not care if a duck is laying or not? (Keep in mind he's blind, haha) Thanks!! VERY exciting day for my flock today!!
