Quote:Why is it unsafe for outside ducks to be tame to humans? They will trust all humans, even ones they shouldn't. They can follow humans up to roads where they can get run over. They can follow another human to a different farm where it could be culled/eaten. Plus they will quack all of the time because they miss humans. My choc runner hen gets very upset when i am gone for long. She will call for me in the house and i have to go calm her by petting her a sometimes giving her a hug. If i've been out all day she quacks at me as if she's saying, "Where were you missy!?!?! I thought you got eaten by a fox i was soo worried!" It's funny getting chewed out by a duck. They imprint on humans and think they are in fact humans. Mine get mad if they don't get to eat at the dinner table (well under the table begging for food).
