    my ducks come when called by most of the family and they never get treats. maybe once a month some left over lettuce or something. I dot know if its more love than training but if I yell for my ducks they come running and quacking to see me.

    I have a baby pekin right now that goes potty in the same exact spot in her tub. She spends most of her time out in my room with me right now though. She lays on her blankets and runs around on the rug so I'm trying to see if I put the shavings in a rabbit litter pan if she will try and use that as her "spot". She always comes running to me and loves being with me. I think the "training" aspect goes along with how attached to you they are. If they see you as the parent I feel they are more inclined to learn from you and listen. She knows when I say her name already. My 12 khakis don't listen much at all. lol They tend to do their own things.

    I was thinking about getting another duck for myself, and for it to be indoor. I used to have outdoor ducks (A female and male) and they had a chick. Later though we sold the chick to a nice new owner since the father fought it. Then one night a group of raccoons attacked their sleeping area. They both died. It was sad.

    From this page I've found many things true and false. A few are that ducks do go in a specific area as much as possible. It's not 100% but it still goes most of the time. Also ducks waddle away from you and then waddle back to you never just going to you. They don't want to get stepped on is the thing. Keep writing and I hope to learn more duck stories from this page. I hope to give knowledge to others as well.
