I apologize. I feel very stupid and childish for asking this, in advance. My male muscovy is starting to try to breed with my female muscovy. He's chasing her around the yard, grabbing the feathers on her back and trying to mount her. He particularly wants to do this when they're in their pool. Here comes the stupid part. She's running away, seems legitimately scared, and when he gets close to succeeding she makes a very distressing honkchirpscream type noise. I'm not an idiot: I know they're animals. I've seen rabbits mate (the female screamed bloody murder), and horses and dogs and cats and cows . . . But other than the rabbits, the other females didn't seem as reticent as my duck does. I guess it hurts? Or she doesn't know what's going on with him? As their caretaker, I want to make sure everything is okay with them both . . . Geez. I feel dumb. Thanks.
