Have a question our ducks are 2 weeks and 4 days old but they still seem like they are kind of afraid of us they seem really skittish especially when we try to pick them up we spend a lot of time with them Are we possibly doing something wrong? I don't want them to be afraid and run from us like they due please help with any kind of advice thank you.
Some ducks are more skittish than others. Just continue to handle them. When you approach their box talk to them before they can see you. That way they won't think you are a predator and you won't startle them.
I did all this and mine are still skittish. Put treats in your hand squat down and get them to eat out of your hand. That way you at least will be able to catch them if you have to examine them.
