In the Brooder
- Jan 21, 2014
I just got a pair of beautiful Welsh Harlequin ducks that were supposed to be 6 months old. They are amazingly calm and even-tempered - my kids named them Monkie and Minkie. The female isn't laying yet, which isn't too strange for 6 months, but from what I understood about ducks, I was worried the drake was going to wear the female out with his amorous ways but as far as I can tell, he doesn't seem at all interested in mating her. They actually act more like a loving old duck couple (which would be totally fine by me). I'm just curious to know if anyone else has experienced this?
