Duck Mating Behaviour

When ducks are wanting to mate with the drake they demonstrate certain behaviours:

  • They will move their head up and down as if they are nodding.
  • The duck drops down onto her belly on the floor or lowers her body when in water and kind of stretches out.
  • Make real deep quacking noises.
