For the last 2 days I've seen a few of my 3.5 month old Muscovy drakelets grabbing at their sisters in an attempt at mating. I was hoping it would be a little longer but.... They won't be able to accomplish much for a while, I'm just surprised that dad isn't more concerned about it. Though I haven't seen them try anything with the 4 adult females. I've got 8 males and 5 females in that bunch. I already have my 2 keeper boys picked out and marked. I'm keeping 1 for size and 1 who is the only one that has several white primary flight feathers (I was only planning on keeping the biggest but with all the flying about they are doing I noticed the flight feathers a few days ago). I figure I'll keep all of the girls for now. The boys will throw chocolate so I'm planning on breeding them with one of the other 2 chocolate females (not mom) to get some chocolate babies. I'll have to wait another week or 2 to see what genders I have in my young batch. I just have SO much that is happening right now. Ducklings and chicks just hatched within the last week or so, chicken eggs in my homemade incubator due to hatch Monday, ducks that need to go to freezer camp and I FINALLY will be starting to work for the first time since we moved up here, probably Monday. AHHH, there aren't enough hours in the day.
