Duck Business

It is enjoyable to watch a group of happy ducks doing all their routine businesses in a pond. According to the lady owner of this group of ducks, the playful ducks would be at the pond every afternoon at around 3pm. They will be playing around, chasing after each other, mating in the water, finding food in the pond, taking their daily bath and then cleaning themseleves dry. The group has 2 drake (male duck) only, each drake carries the burden to mate about 10 ducks. As I watched them mating, I observed that the drake could mate 3-4 ducks in a session and it did not mate the same duck twice.
