    I have to say that ducks reay can fall in love! When I got my first ducklings from my co op in spring, I ended up with way to many males, but ended up keeping to two hens that I got, and one drake. The hens were a rouen, and a ancona. The drake was a rouen. Well, after a few months the two hens began laying and I also had two khaki hens, and a khaki drake, so I put some eggs in the bator. 9 total. Well 6 of those were from the khaki hens, bred by the rouen drake. And three were from the rouen hen, bred to the rouen drake, all the khaki eggs but two hat,hed and are very healthy. But two of the rouen eggs died early on. But one rouen baby did make it! and I have to say my two rouens are TRULY in love [​IMG] and had a beautiful baby [​IMG]

    I know what you mean. I have two mallards (male and female) that really love each other! I have another drake, but she doesn't like him they way she likes the other mallard.

    The Red Rooster: I had a khaki drake, and the rouen drake, and she wanted nothing to do with the khaki. But they reqlly are in love. I thought it was a cute love story that you all would enjoy. Hopeing I will have a better hatch rate next year with them
