    I'm new to baby ducks. I rather enjoy putting my finger out for them to "bite." Is this stupid like allowing puppies to bite? Am I just asking for trouble? they are muscovy if that makes any difference.

    thanks.

    I wouldn't encourage it! [​IMG] Scovies can be cranky at best, so any added mean little tricks they learn can only add to their rather dubious "charm"! [​IMG]

    I wouldn't continue teaching that bad habit, think of how it will feel when they mature.
