    I have three mallards one male two females. Will my male mate with both females? I've seen him with the smaller one alot but i have never seen him mount the larger one.

    He'll mate w/ both. I only saw my muscovy Drake mate w/ 1, but all 3 hens hatched out babies each time. I let my hens do the setting. U tried once in the incubator and got nothing.
