So, I have recently seen some new and somewhat strange (or at least intriguing) behavior from one of my WH. I am beginning to put my new baby Runners outside during part of the day. They are about a hundred feet from my WH, but they can see each other. The WH are still really babies themselves- not even three months old yet. One of the female WH just goes nuts when she sees the baby Runners. She becomes frantic and calls to them SO LOUD it is unreal! I have never in all the years I have kept ducks seen anything like it, certainly not to this degree or with such a young bird. I have heard that WH will go broody, more so than other large ducks. It certainly seems like this one might be one that does!
