My new duck is a mallard. And when I hold it normally (like how you hold a dog or cat), it goes nuts to try and get away from you and outta your arms. But the second you flip it over and hold it on its back like a baby, it calms right down and would lay there in your arms for hours, if she could. Does anybody know why she does this!!!! Or do you have a duck that does the same thing?!?!
