    I was cleaning out the enclosure today..
    I have 2 Drakes and 2 Ducks (I am going to get more females as I cant give one of the Drake's away)

    I noticed the two Drake;s today were acting funny around one of the females.

    They would sort of lift their heads up, grunt and do a little wiggle? They would each do it in turns.
    Is this how they try and impress the females?

    I am thinking of parting them soon incase they hurt one of my female ducks :(

    Yes they are seeing if she is on the same page as they are. My Muscovy drakes don't gang up on the females thank goodness.
