    hi guys! i'm new to ducks and have been raising my two pekins since they were about two weeks old! [​IMG] They're about 14 weeks old now and outside all day... I'm just wondering... Is it right for them to be scared of thunderstorms and quack loudly at me until I come outside? Sorry if this is a stupid question! Thanks [​IMG]

    All my ducks love storms. They aren't even interested in shelter, they wanna be right out there in it!

    But it makes sense, that some ducks, like some people or other animals, may be afraid of storms, or the loud noise thunder makes. Especially if they're still young.
