Alright heres how the story goes. On April fools day (april 1st) I went in to Tractor Supply Co. to get chicken feed and I saw that they has some baby ducks. They had 8 of them. 2 yellow ones a pekin and the other turned out to be a fawn and white not runner but something else. Two black ones, to white and black ones, and two baby mallard looking ones that can fly now but one has a tuft of feathers on his head.( a crested mallard maybe). I dont know how to post pics on here but if anyone has ever gotton ducklings from Tractor Supply Co. and you have pictures of what mine look like in the desription then can you please post them and tell me what they are. Mine are all feathered out but i still dont know.
I have moved them out of their brooder and into a bigger one for now just until i get my small duck house built. which of course will be done in a few days or so(hopefully). Ever since I got them they have always ran from me.
I would really like to know why they are acting this way i have no idea. I want to hold them and love thembut they are to afraid and ever since i brought them home from Tractor Supply Co. they have ran from me. I have to chase them all around the brooder and once i do catch one it quacks and claws me and acts like I am going to kill it. All of my chickens are really tame and i know this is a chicken forum but i dont know what else to do. Does anyone know how to get a ducks trust.
I AM SO CONFUSED!!!!!
