Spring has definitely sprung around our place. Yesterday, we went to do some work around the chook yard and found Ruprt (Pekin drake) on top of Jemima (Pekin duck) :oops: It looked rather uncomfortable for her- he was holding the back of her neck in his beak and squashing her into the dirt. She decided she wasnt fussed and wandered off. Two minutes later, they were at it again- in the pond! Our concern was- he was holding the back of her neck again- thus pushing her head under water! We were concerned she would drown, so broke up their tryste. She was definitely in the mood for him (if you know what I mean :wink: ) Should we be intervening like this or let love run its course?

Nah, you don't need to break it up. The drakes always grab the back of the ducks neck to do their thang...and it may mean it almost looks like he's drowning her. Although if she is looking rather tired or she runs away when he wants it she's proabaly had enough! Oh and she will probably get a bald spot on the back of her head too.
