Hello all, I'm hoping that you can help me out again. I'm curious as to how long it takes for new ducklings to stop being afraid of us. They both were store bought so there was no imprinting. I'm curious because when we do get them out of the brooder to spend time with them, they cry allot and scurry away. Usually after about 15 mins or so they will calm down and like to climb under our hair and fall asleep. Sometime if I can keep them calm long enough, they will fall asleep in my hand. However, once you put them back in the brooder, they will panic as soon as you get near them and start all over again. Should we be spending more time with them or is there a way that anyone has found to help them get over their fear of people? On a side note, I've read that some people have used peas as treats and that ducks love them. I thawed about a dozen frozen sweet peas and introduced them to the treat. They were scared of them at first, hiding in the corner while just staring at them. So I decided to leave just a few in their food bowl to see what would happen. They ate them, but the next time I tried, the same thing happened and they ran away from them. Maybe I'm in too much of a hurry, and if I am, please tell me so. I just have become so attached to them already that I hate to see them scared. Any advice that I can get is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
