    Every time I go to pet my duck it lays it's whole body on the ground (head and neck too) and it will just sit there and I will keep petting it and then it quacks pretty quite. What does that mean when she does that?

    It means she LOVES you and wants to have your babies. [​IMG]

    That's pretty much right. Hens show that they are willing to mate by squatting/laying down in submission.
