For some reason today my male mute keeps chasing off the female. When I cam home from work I noticed her sitting in the woods. I wasn't sure what what she was doing so when my husband came home he went to see if she had a nest (They are only 2) and she didn't. So he picked her up and carried her back down to the water and the male came over and chased her off. Any suggestions on why all of a sudden they aren't getting along?
