    My ducklings are scared of everything, If you come to see them the scream and run away as quick as they can. [​IMG] How can I calm them down? They are not friendly at all we got them when they we're 1 day old. I started taming the first day we got them. thanks for reading!

    have them in a brooder that you can access from the side rather then the top, anything coming in above them is naturally perceived as a predator. some chicks/ducks/poults are just scared to death of anything and everything but with treats (mealworms is what i use) they quickly learn that you're their friend :)

    good luck!!
