    These Jumbo Rouen hens were raised with Call ducks, so they don't know this love affair with the Call drakes just isn' t gonna work out.

    Well, where there's a will, there's a way. The call drakes may very well figure out how to get the job done with the big girls. Many a bantam rooster has managed the deed with full sized hens.

    :) Well they certainly do try, but it seems like an exercise in futility with little likelihood of fertility.

    Do they have water to swim in ? It may help expedite the process.
