My duck is getting aggressive. He "attacks" my son by frantically nibbling at his pant legs. Poor guy, we just crack up at him and kick him away. I will say he chased my son (he's 12) across the yard today flapping his wings the whole way. Again, we just cracked up but I don't want bad habits to form. So my question is: is that duck attacking behavior? Do we treat him like a roo who would pull the same stunt? He doesn't pull that crap with me. The minute he gets even slightly snippy I pick him up and hold him to show him who's the boss. Is that even the right thing to do? Sorry for the dumb questions. I have never been around ducks before and adopting one has given me a very steep learning curve. LOL I tried to go back into the archives on this topic and found a follow up post where the OP mentioned it was normal? Does that sound right? Ugh...lost.
