Just a quick question. (I looked for a thread about this and didn't find one) Apparently it is mating season and the ducks are getting in the mood. Unfortunately for our ducks they are all girls. This of course does not stop them from attempting the process. Today after changing the pool water they went at it. When it was over our Pekin (she was in the female position in the lovin) had two red spots on her skin with feathers missing on both sides of her neck where the "male" was pulling on her feathers. Is this a normal occurrence or was this session abnormally rough? Please note the dark dots is where she was playing in the mud when I discovered the boo-boo. I brought her inside, cleaned it, and put antibiotic ointment on it. Her feathers cover it so I am not worried about one of the chickens seeing it and going after it.
