    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I afraid I'm not a duck person but I see you have posted in the duck section. That's a great place to get all the answers to your duck questions.

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your ducks.

    Enjoy BYC :frow

    Welcome to the group! Sometimes you get a bad drake that don't do his job. I breed ducks and i see this from time to time. It's rare, but it does happen. If he shows no interest in the hens, I would look for a replacement.

    Do you supply them a pool to swim in? Some ducks prefer to mate in water.

    Just a thought.

    You may want to post on the "Duck thread." I do know ducks like to mate on water but, sometimes the female ends up getting drowned.
