    My Muscovies do this weird thing when they see each other or just when ever really. They hold there head up in the air and like bite the air opening and shutting their mouth. No noise... Head held high. ?????????? [​IMG]

    It's like a "oh i am so excited!!" thing..mine do it too. they could be excited to see the other ducks or excited as in ready to kick some duck butt, lol. Mine usually do the head bobbing & huffy puffy stuff when they see eachother, the air biting thing when they know i have treats, lol.

    my hen does that too the cats too. she HATES them. my drake is used to them. him and i got really close when she was broody. both my ducks were living inside then. they have only been outside for like a week and a half..? my drake used to go in my mom's room and eat cat food. he didn't even have to chase them off, they were already scared of him lol. he loved my mom's room. he's just a big goof. i love my drake he's the best drake is the world [​IMG]
