    We just got 3 new Cayuga ducklings today, and I was wandering what is the best way to tame them? They are pretty skittish right now. And we are going to handle them a lot. I have heard that treats work well to tame, but what do you give ducklings for treats? What other ways can you tame? and what is best to get them used to you and will not run every time you move around?
    Thanks!! these are our 1st small ducklings, we got out other ducks as older ducklings.
     
  2. Constant exposure with fresh new grass in your hand works very well. They love watermelon and tomatoes. Well found the best results raising ducklings with goslings, never seen a friendlier duck once the goslings rub off on them.
