My 5 week Muscovy duckling, Ralphy, is super sweet and cuddly and a lot of fun. However, sometimes he gets to biting my hand and can get a bit too rough. I can tell he really enjoys it because he sits down on me and closes his eyes really sweetly while he does it lol
I'd like to reprimand him, but I'm not sure how you punish a duck... I've read somewhere on here that you push him down to show dominance? or tap his bill? I've tried making a yelp noise when he does it to startle him (like you would with a puppy) and tapping his chest lightly and also just saying no and moving away. I don't want to scare him away, but it would be nice to know the correct and most effective way to reprimand him.
This is the little stinker:
