    Ok, so I have 2 ducks (both are hens) and they are both about 2-3 months old. I keep them in a pen with my chickens. I do have a big pond in the back of my house and so I let them go and swim for a while in the big pond. As they were swimming... 2 wild ducks fly by and one of them grabbed one of my girls by the neck and tried to mate with her but.. I was able to break them up probably about 10 seconds later. I'm so upset. Could this have hurt her since she is so young? Could the drake actually have mated her? :( I feel awful. (New duck owner)
