    my ducks LOVE to play with string thats hanging off of things. i don't know why, but they are each playing with a string right now. they had one hanging from a tarp inside their pen, but my mom looked out and they and pulled it down far enough that it as a loop and one duck got his neck stuck in it. we were able to free him before any damage was done. but after that, i took the strings out and got some new toys for them. (dog toys, one rope toy and then a turtle) i hung them from the pen, and they haven't touched them. do you have any idea why they love strings so much?

    they aren't playing, they are testing items to try to eat them.

    toys really can be a poor choice. they can choke on many parts and rope definitely should be avoided.
