    Okay so I have two Cayuga Drakes and no females. I believe it's their mating season but because they don't have any females they try to mate with each other. How do I stop this? When mating season ends will they discontinue their efforts to mate with each other?

    There's not really a way to stop it short of separating them or getting them some girls (at least three each). They'll stop when their hormones calm but that may well not be until winter. If they're not hurting each other it's not too big a deal and I wouldn't worry about it. If injury occurs then you'll need to do something about it.

    Nothing can be done to stop that...;).....My Call Drake would not breed the Hens...He only bred my Appleyard Drake till I separated them for Breeding season...:).....Drakes actually breed all year round...I think they need some ladies...;).......


    Cheers!
