    A day or two ago I posted a series of pix with my roo Elvis and my hen MinnieMe "kissing" Well, Elvis has taken a shine to my duck Peep who just raised a bunch of ducklings, and is laying eggs again. I dont have a drake. (We bought fertilized eggs for her last brood)

    He mounts her, holding her head feathers in his beak.
    He goes through all the "motions" but of course has severe anitomical limitations. . If he continues this behavior, I'll try to get some more pictures.

    Elvis is also known as Satan. He attacks anything not possessing feathers. [​IMG]

    Peep and family earlier this spring
    Elvis lusting after the neighbors hens. He used to fly over the gate to catch a "quickie" but I think he got beat up one time too many by the neighbor's rooster who is at least 5 times as big, and fortunately can't fly

    That is one reason I keep different fowl separated.
