I recently adopted 5 ducks, a Swedish Black, a Swedish Blue, a Mallard ( female), A Rouen, and a Peking. They are already adults and lived with the same owner all there lives ( 1.5 yrs) Now I have them, they act as if they are scared to death of me .. I try to move very slowly and I feel like they are threatened by me no matter how hard I try not to look threatening. They sit huddled together in the same corner most of the time just looking out of the pen as if they are waiting for something. When I first brought them home they would not leave the duck house I had built for them ( 8'x4') so I ushered them out. Now I cannot get them back in the dang thing. The Mallard flew off because I startled him once.. ( despite my best efforts not too) then he came back to be with his buddies.. when I tried to usher him around to the entrance to the pen he flew off again! ( I swear I am moving slowly and non aggressively) I just don't know what to do .. they wont go into the pond ( kiddie pool) and they eat at very strange times .. After doing some research I am going to put them on a strict twice a day feeding regiment ( 30 minutes feeding time then food comes up) to get them used to a routine.. does all of this sound normal or do I have a set of ducks with issues that needs help? Any advice on how to fix this problem if I have one would be helpfull.
