Hi guys, Mallory is a female Mallard duck we have rescued when she was only a few days old. She typically doesn't like being petted but enjoys our company. When we let her out of her sleeping area she crouches down, sits and coos and even puts her neck on the floor. When you pet her from the head to the back her tail sorta sticks up while she is doing this. She started only doing this a month ago. She's not scared since she follows us everywhere and calls loudly when she can't see us.
