    [​IMG]My female Pekin is always shaking her tail feathers, does that mean anything? Second question she always bobs her head when she sees me and qaucks real loud.

    She is happy to see you...Mine all shake their tails, flap wings and bob their heads when I let them out in the morning or let then out to free range...They also do it if they get scared and come running for me...Just a greeting I think...

    My female Pekin does the same thing quite often -she does it when I greet them getting home from work - when I let them out of pen to free range- when I fill their pool - when I feed them- when she separates briefly from the two males and they rejoin she does it lol I'm no duck expert only a duck owner for 10 months but I swear it seems she does it when she's happy.
