My ducklings (one week old tomorrow) are fairly skittish -- understandably since the cat scared the beans out of them during the night recently -- and really avoid being near anyone or being picked up. I have been sitting near them, to allow them to come to me, as often as I can, and as long as I am just there, they will eventually come over and even run around on my hands. If I move at all, though, they freak, and run for a corner of their brooder. I know not to reach over the top of them, and to keep things as mellow as possible, and I notice that they are much happier with me if I am sitting near the food or offering them a swim, but I wonder if anyone has any tips for encouraging more trust to build. Thanks for any suggestions!
