Mallards and morality

The behaviour of the ducks in my back garden has become more and more baffling. The pair - Mr and Mrs Always-together Mallard - seems to have disintegrated. At one point she was with FOUR males. Since then, she has disappeared, and I have the disturbing spectacle of Mr Mallard with another Drake, seemingly inseparable and very fond of each other.
Where is she? On eggs, or in a huff?
There is more than a hint of loose morals in my back garden. I wonder what the Vatican's take on this is likely to be.

The Pope either said: "This filth must be cleaned up,"

or

"It never crossed my desk."

We are now down to one lone drake, whose behaviour is so erratic that I am convinced he is neurotic. He's come to the right place....
