    I have a 14wk Mallard duck. He/she stays inside the house, and recently he/she has started doing this thing where all of a sudden, he/she lays down, and lowers his/her head aswell. And then yesterday, he/she did the same thing, but this time, he/she put his/her tailfeather in the air as if he/she weren't able to poop, or something. Or if he/she was trying to push something out. I hope someone knows whats going on. I don't think it's a problem with pooping, because he/she poops fine. Someonee plz let me know if you know what my duck is doing D:

    I think she's inviting you to mate with her. [​IMG]
