    I have two pekins...a male and a female...they are a little over four months old...yes I know for sure I have a male and a female....the male has fallen in love with the bumpers on our trucks [​IMG] ..he circles them all the time and looks at himself and quacks [​IMG] ....its really pitiful to watch him do this....the female will sit and look at him like he has lost his mind...will he ever stop doing this or how do I get him to stop? [​IMG] He has a female and has already started loving on her but he gets really excited when I drive up in the drive way...he will come straight to my truck. [​IMG]

    Is his name, Narciss? That is SO funny. [​IMG]

    Likely, your bumpers are saving wear and tear on your girl duck. Perhaps you should wash your cars less often.

    I had a wild bird that did that with my car windows and house windows. He sang to himself and chirped constantly. Unfortunately, he poo'd there quite a bit. [​IMG]

    Well, if I were you, I'd find a way to fence off the duck from the truck. Then, you will hear his lovesick calls.

    Either that, or buy him a mirror. [​IMG] [​IMG]
