    Its really weird.But I caught my rooster mating with my female duck[​IMG]. Could female ducks actually lay an egg from a rooster? Also we have a male duck. Why? [​IMG]

    The rooster was just being a rooster. They will mate anything sometimes. No it will not be fertile from the roo. Just a little bit of rooster silliness

    I've caught a very frustrated rooster trying to mate a coffee can. Beware if your duck starts amorous attentions toward your hens. That kind of breeding can kill a hen.

    I had a Drake that would breed my black hens, before I got him some hens of his own. [​IMG]
