Rouen pet duck circles

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Does anyone know what it means or why my male Rouen duck circles me when I'm outside. I have made a game of it with him as I laugh and rub his sides as he crosses in front of me. This did start with my daughter though. I am hopeful that it means he's happy. Any thoughts are appreciated as this is our first but we have more on the way.

Hi Matty - sorry, i can't help you out on that one. Maybe he was a sheep dog in a previous life? :) Welcome to BYC and good luck with your impending new additions.

 

All the best

Hi Matty,  that is a question best presented on the "Duck thread,"   just put that in the search box and it will pop.   If he is a mature drake, maybe that is some sort of mating  display.

Yep, probably best to ask in the duck forum (although I do like CTKen's thoughts, lol).

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
