    When I take my duck and drake down to the dam only my duck dives under the water, where as my drake just splashes himself. Is diving a female thing only?

    They had ducklings and two of the ducklings dived under water in the pond yesterday (very exciting) and I was wondering if it was a way to tell their gender if diving is a girly thing because I am giving two ducklings, which hoping are to be female, to a friend so I was wondering if it was a way to tell.

    Nope, all my Muscovy's do the flapping & diving when they go to the creek for their baths.

    I wish though!
