I have a female tan and white runner and I originally had two male pekings but I gave them away sadly to prevent breeding with my female. I acquired another female duck. Now I'm 95% sure my Indian runner is a female, the voice is a deep quacking and there isn't a curled tail feather. They are both 4 months old. I have noticed however my Indian runner is getting on top of the other female in the bathtub and to me it really looks like mating. Could it be that my Indian runner is a male?

Can you post a video of the suspected male? You have to upload it to youtube and then post it here. By four months you would know if it was a male. Hopefully you've just got a dominant girl, but I've never had female ducks mate with each other.

Yes I have a video of it I'll try that and see if I can upload it here. It wouldn't let me before

I've got a few duck hens that like to get more in on the action than most, if you know what I mean. Seems to be a fairly common occurrence. I can't see your video, though.
This is the first time I've ever owned ducks so I wasn't sure. Let me see if I can change the privacy of the video to see if that helps
