    My Pekin duck it's about 4 months old. She starts to get loud whenever she sees me playing with her sister (the dog) and then she tries to bite me. I feel like she just wants to play and then she's not doing it to be mean is that possible? Also is there any way to actually play with a duck?

    Ducklings play....Like all baby animals, everything goes in the mouth....My Adult Ducks pick up stones and put them in the kiddie pool and play with my screen door...
    Is yours biting or noodling?...If its a lone Duckling it has not learned any proper Duck manners...

    Well I know she doesn't have manners, that's for sure but I don't know what noodling is

    Oh okay well she does some of that but she also does bite. When she does that I tap her bill and tell her no. It seems to work.
