    We're getting our two ducks, male and female(hopefully one black east indian and the other a call) at the age of 8 weeks old, when they'll be feathered.
    So of course, since this isn't very young they will probably be quite timid etc.
    This is quite worying, as i have a habit of checking my duck (Trouble) over every day. I pick him up, and check his feet first etc.
    Will The new Ducks bond well or not?
    What can i do to help them bond with me?

    I never had this problem with Trouble, even though I got him as a adult. He seemed to get know me really easily.Ihave just read in alot of places that most ducks will be shy.
    Any Help would be appreciated.
