This is my sweet bantam duck Beans! She's around 7-8 months old right now, and for the last two days she's gone from her usual very high-energy/spunky/often trouble making bahavior to very, very chilled out, very quiet and sleeps a lot of the day next to me now. What really has me questioning all this though is that this change in behavior has been accompanied by her taking her favorite toy (a little stringy homemade thing with shiny pieces on it that she loves) and pushing it underneath her every time she lays down, just like an egg. If I pull it out from under her she'll just use her little bill and push it back beneath her again! All this has me wondering if maybe she's feeling a little broody and is preparing to start laying eggs soon?!
