    I am completely new to ducks (as in today being day 1), so forgive total ignorance. My new female is doing something word with her head. It's not exactly shaking, more like she's checking her foot constantly. I tried to get video, but of course she stopped doing it as soon as I had the camera.

    How old is she? If she is an adult, there is a sideways head movement that can mean
