    im looking for ducks to be more pets and be friendly and cuddle with me. Is there a breed that in general will fit this personality, i know each duck has a different personality but i really want a duck that would be a pet kinda like a dog, but in duck form. thanks

    If you want a dog, I suggest that you get a dog. Ducks are ducks, not dogs.

    i am aware, im looking for a duck with a friendly temperament and will form a bond with me that resembles a bond i would have with a dog. I dont want mean and nasty birds

    Call ducks are friendly, especially if raised from ducklings with a lot of handling. In my opinion they're the cutest ducks, too!

    Pekins and Muscovies are the most "dog-like" in their personalities.

    I def agree Muscovy ducks have a lovely personality, each different but generally calm & intelligent birds who are easy to form a bond with

    I vote Muscovies and Pekins as well and have both...my Muscovies are far friendlier than any of the others...they get right under my heels and beg for handouts...they will eat out of my hand and chattter at me about six inches from my face...they are just the cutest darn things...I love the way their "hair" stands up if and when they get alarmed...

    I agree with what's said: Pekins and Muscovies. Scovies will follow you everywhere, wagging their tails.
