    First thing I notice is that they will start to develop a kind of pouch between their legs. Sounds like your guys like to do some stretching exercise before getting in the pool. [​IMG] How old are they?? Eggs may still not be too far off.

    My ducks did that about a month before they started laying. They also started playing "hop on top." They're all girls, but they get those breeding hormones and are uninhibited about going with the feeling, as far as I can tell.
