    Hello

    I was wondering if domesticated drakes ( I have a domesticated grey mallard) will he mate with just one of my hens like wild ducks do or will he bond with all of them?

  2. He usually will mate with all of them, except sometimes there will be one hen out of a flock a drake will not mate with.

    He'll mate with anything he can catch:)

    I have a mallard drake well 2 I guess they are the wild kind you know green heads,they were raised by me since they were babies so they arent wild..I have 4 girls they mate with all but they do like the mallard girls more,they pick them first them go after the others...
