My six month old mallard hen suddenly started quacking non-stop about a half hour ago. She's still at it. Normally she's super quiet and only quacks when her male buddy gets out of site. I know I'm grasping at straws here but is this something associated with egg laying? She hasn't laid any yet but we are in Ca. and the winters are very mild. My neighbors are probably seriously annoyed right now. At least she's not as loud as the Welsh Harlequins.
