    I'm trying to figure out if I have two females or a male and a female. I get two different colored eggs everyday but I see one of the ducks on top of the other and it looks like they are mating. I'm lost!! I'm curious if it's just a dominance thing. Any help is appreciated!

    Mating behavior can be dominance related. If you are getting two, very different eggs each day, then you certainly have two females.

    sounds like two females. I have 2 girls and they both lay different looking eggs. Do either of your ducks have a curly tail feather? If not, you have two females.
  4. I have 3 hens and two Drakes....I know, I know , I know.....One Drake per 3 to 4 Hens....Anyways long story about that but off topic!
    My Hens do get excited and mount each other in the pool....It is dominance and excitement....My one Call Drake has never bred a hen....Only breeds the other Drake....
