He hates socks with even more passion, so I can't just throw on a pair to stop his duckish rage. Nothing works, no matter how I try to dominate or punish him, it just doesn't stick. Talk about stubborn!
Babies or no, I'm seriously considering having hi fixed at this point just to see if it'll curb his aggression, even if it's only by a marginal amount.
My duck did the exact same thing, he absolutely hated me, but one day he just decided he accepted me and now he's the cutest thing.
Maybe it's just a fase? I just kind off avoided him when he was acting like that, and he didn't like that because he wants to get my attention 24/7.
I also pretended it really didn't hurt, and i would start laughing when he was attacking me (even though it really hurt haha) and then he would just give up.
I hope your duck will get through this fase too, because I understand the frustration you have when you are trying to be nice and cuddle him and give him treats and all you get in return is attacks on your feet :P
My sister has tried the stick for two days now and right now she can walk through the yard without being attacked, but he still chases her and screams at her, so there is definitely room for improvement lol.
I'll keep you guys updated!
