I have 2 Pekin ducks, both female and noisy. They are free ranging. Unfortunately, I can't touch them! They were given to me back in June. They had never been fooled with, so now if I catch them I have to use a bird net, very stressful for both the ducks and me. Any tips on how to make these birds tame? They are put into their enclosure each night, they follow me in but won't get within my reach. I have tried putting their treat, peas, in my hand to entice them in, but no doing!
I have the ducks as a fun thing to do. They are a hoot to watch! Always doing something comical!
My little ladies lay one egg/day each! We end up giving eggs away. Since they are unfertilized (no drake) it is so much easier. I have one duck that quite often lays a double yoked egg, it will be HUGE!
Thanks for posting things about ducks, I always find out something new!
