Ducks hanging their heads down.

my ducks are about 16 weeks old. Everytime I pick them up they hang their head down. My pekin only does it while holding her. My other duck does it when I have my hands on him when he's on the floor or when picking him up. Any ideas why. Included some pics.

They probably want down. The body usually follows the head unless they are being restrained.

I just wanted to make sure there was nothing wrong with them. They don't squirm when holding them so I didn't even think of that.
