Werid duck behavioir

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a duck who was sick, but i treated with antibiotics. I started to notice a weeid behaviour. When ever i came near her or pet her, she flattened out her body and if i pet her she raised her bottom up. Kinda like a cat dose when you scratch in the spot between the body and the tail. Is this normal? I have a pic

It's mating behavior - she pictures you as her mate.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.
There are no coincidences- only providences.

sounds to me like she's looking for you to mate with her. Especially the raised butt.

Well since it is hormonal, she may be this way more during mating season.

 

 

And I have read several cases where someone needed to treat their duck for an injury or illness, and the duck became very close to the person for a while.

 

 

It is fairly common.  Ducks do often seem to think their person is just a really big, funny-looking duck.

 

 

Consider it a compliment.:D
