We rescued a pair of adult ducks a few weeks ago and are trying to learn what all their little behaviors mean. They are not very tame so we try to hold and interact with them as much as we can. The male really hates when I pick up his girlfriend lol! We gave them a nice little tub of water to splash around in but they won't go near it! I put the female in it and she sat there for a few seconds looking at me like, "what is wrong with you?" and then she quickly got out. Abnormal ducks? The one thing I am really curious about, is when I stroke the female duck's neck, she kind of nibbles up my arm and even sticks her head up my sleeve! It tickles. I am just wondering what exactly this means; is it a friendly gesture, or a "go away" gesture, or is she just foraging to see if I have any bugs on me??
