    Just a couple of ?'s:

    What does it mean when a male and female are standing facing each other and bobbing thier heads up and down at each other? Mating dance?

    Does anyone else have a female that sounds like a high pitched dog barking when she gets excited. And also when we walk outside she bobs her head up and down and grunts like a defense move or something.

    The head bobbing at each other is definitely sweet talk/foreplay the duck way. [​IMG]
    I haven't quite figured out what it means when they do it to me though. They might be claiming their mate because mine NEVER want me to come over. :|

    Homegroan you're ornery!!!!

    So I've got Carter, my new flirter girl, who has chosen Chief as her flirtee. So Lowrider is looking like the 3rd wheel out there. Should I get another girl or two? Or will he be okay being the odd man out? Ducks don't share do they? [​IMG]
