@Psyduckowner420   time and slow. Your duck has bonded with your friend because that is how they cope with new homes. Best thing to do is sit quietly and offer treats don't push your duck into doing anything he is uncomfortable with like trying to pet or hold him. I use Dried Meal worms when trying to gain the trust of a duck. Sitting quietly talking softly and some handful of treats will help but it will all take time. Is your duck a house duck ?are there other flock members besides him?
