how old is he?

if he's over 3 years old, his breeding days may well be over.

my pekin pair are getting older, and they RARELY mate anymore.

but my younger drakes are always on the lookout for you know what LOL

most breeders start to sell stock when they start getting too old to produce fertile eggs.

I THINK hens can produce eggs up to like, 5 or 6 years.

but drakes fetility starts to drop after the first 2 years, and goes down steadily after that.
