My house duck, a Mallard (female and looks like it's in a break of laying eggs), is being super ornery and she HATES me. LOL. She gets super puffy and starts quacking loudly. When my BF comes around he calms her down and she's fine. When my BF leaves the room and she's here with just me she calls for him LOUDLY! To explain before this behavior, she's always preferred my BF because he's here with her everyday and always preferred his company. But she loved hanging out with me when I am home from work and even slept by my bed at nights or by my feet while on the couch just with me. She never acted angry towards me. As of now I am trying to win her over with treats. She still comes over to eat out of my hands but is still defensive... Once she get's her food she get's loud and angry again. I am trying to leave her alone and pass by her nonchalantly and not touch her. I try to calmly talk to her and sing despite her quacking crazily at me. How can I win back the love of my beloved Mallory? :-( If she can't stop we may have to give her away! And that's the last thing I want to do.
