Hello everyone, I just joined--this is my first post. We've kept chickens for almost 2 years now, but we just got some ducks. We started with 4 Khakis, then added 2 Runners & 2 Silver Appleyards this past weekend. My question is how to get our ducks to enjoy being around us and not run away from us? When we just had the Khakis, it was awful--they ran from us and quacked a warning quack whenever we came near. When we got the other breeds, they were not quite so scared, but still a bit timid--a couple will eat from our hands very cautiously, and the Khakis have become a little less afraid. However, the ducks still have a fear of us which we wish wasn't there. I know some people's ducks sit on their laps, climb on their backs, etc. We saw a video of a lady on YouTube who practiced holding her ducks everyday and didn't release them until they relaxed. She said that worked for her and that eventually they'd climb on her back, etc. But ours get more scared after we hold them it seems. Thanks for any help/advice you can offer.
