I have 3 ducks, a drake and two females. One of my female ducks does this weird little.. I'm not sure what to call it. I've seen both the females do it though.
She'll curve her neck to the side (usually to the right) so her bill is kinda pointed out towards her tail end. Then she'll sort of sidle to the side, and make this weird little continuous crackle quacking noise at the same time. It only lasts for a few moments before she stops. I'm not sure how to explain it. She often does it when the drake is near her. Both females do this, but it's mostly the one. Is this some sort of courtship, or maybe submission? Or maybe some other behavior? I'm stumped. I've searched everywhere, but I can't find anything about it.
Has anyone else possibly seen this behavior before? Thanks in advance to anyone who might be able to shed a little light on this :)
