We have three female ducks that we got last March. Zipper, a black Cayuga; Baby Blue, a blue Swede and Maggie, a Magpie. They are wonderful pets, get along great with the chickens, kids, dogs etc. Zipper is our lead duck and the friendlier of the 3. She will come up to us and sometimes let us pick her up or hold her. The other two wont' even let us touch them. Since it got cold and dark, Zipper has become louder than normal (which was already loud). She quacks at the top of her little ducky lungs over anything and everything. Quacks to be let out of her pen, quacks while standing in the yard, quacks on the back porch. What is up with her??? Is she just bored? Do you think she misses her swimming pool (it's frozen)? Sometimes there's a real reason, like she needs her water bowl refilled, but other times I can't find any obvious reason. It can get to be a bit much after awhile. The other two are still quiet. They did stop laying about 3 weeks ago, but that's typical due to the darkness. Anyone else have the same situation?
