My ducks are boring and still scared of people. People make them run. Rarely do the older adults get in their water tub. Young ones don't unless you put them in, but usually they're so freaked out you're in the pen that they panic and run. They panic and run. A lot. I can't let them free range because... you guessed it. They run. Sometimes panic, lots of running. That is, the adults. Haven't let the younger out after I had to keep playing duck hunt for my adults. They definitely don't like that, makes them panic and run. They won't play with toys. They don't lay eggs (ok, I'll give the little ones an excuse...) Some days they gobble down the feed like I've starved them, multiple bowls, and today I only filled it once but found it still half full at dusk. Weird? They don't seem to care about other foods, "duck treats". Chipmunk came and ate the peas for them. A chicken ran in and gobbled scratch when I held a constructive panic and run session to the garden. Thought they'd love going into my fenced garden. Just cover crop right now. Lots of bugs, green things. Nope. They just stood in one spot all afternoon until it was panic and run time back to their pen. I must have missed a duck memo. What was I expecting? Something more entertaining? Creatures that didn't act like prey on a silver server?
