Hello World of BYC. Today my duck waddles (the one who almost died last week :O) was mating (on top of, shaking) my little White Crested Sunshine. What does this mean? I did order all females, but could a male have slipped through? It'll be fine if they don't end up in our chicken coop, but I don't want to take what I call 'The Drake Risk' (with drakes and chickHens). Could s/he have been just a bit out of whack and do random things? I don't have more details my friend saw it while I was refilling the water but if I see it again I'll post some more descriptive material.

Females will mount each other for dominance.

Thanks. (that was probably common knowledge for duck folk but I'm a total duck noob)

Don't feel bad at all. We all started as Duck newbies at one point!
