so i bought four pekin ducks may 13, 2008. they were a couple days old and TERRIFIED of people. you got anywhere near them, they would freak and try their hardest to get away. despite our best efforts, their views on people never really changed. for awhile, the girl slushie, would let me (and only me) pet her but only while she was eating watermelon. the guys were bad influences and soon she was afraid of me again. they trust me the most out of anybody because i'm the one that cares for them. when herding them into their pen for the night, they let me walk rather close. one day, it was about 60 (yeah in the middle of jan!!) so i pulled out their little kiddie pool. our hose broke so i had to lug gallons of water across our rather large yard to fill up their pool. chubby, the dominate duck, climbed in and wouldn't get out. i approached slowly because i didn't want to scare him and he just sat there looking at me. i kneeled down and started to pour in the water. he decided he wanted to splash. he splashed about a gallon of dirty duck water all over me. i screamed "chubby!" and that just made him do it again. that is the closest i have ever been to him. well now that i had an extremely long story that wasn't really needed, i'm going to get back to why i started writing this. okay, so, i want to tame them. i want to be able to sit there and have them come up to me and (maybe) be able to pet them--it might be wishful thinking though! any ideas? thanks!
