    I have a 6 month old pekin duck who has just recently began quacking all day starting at 5 and not stopping until dark. He has plenty of food and his own swimming pool can anyone give me some reasons he might have begun acting this way?

    [​IMG] Is it the only duck that you have?

    Same question as sourland. Ducks are very social. All the Ducks I've ever had, (which is a bunch), would get very upset if they were alone. If he is an only-duck you probably need to get another duck to keep him company. [​IMG]

    My drake is about 6 months and also started to be more vocal. Idk because I've read that some drakes aren't as vocal or at all and/or some drakes are very vocal. I think it just depends.

    If "HE" is quacking, it may be a SHE.

    In the meantime, an unbreakable mirror can be a big help. Is the duck in a very safe place where predators (including dogs and cats and hawks) cannot get to her or him? Ducks can see threats that we cannot see.
