    Depends on the duck. Some can take weeks others can take months.

    He still does love you. He just wants to be independant for awhile. Most ducks I know of go threw that. I have one doing that now to as well. She will take treats from my hand and then walk away. Just give it time and lots and lots of treats and he will warm up to you again.

    My best friend had the same problem. An older gentlemen claiming to have had ducks for 50+ years told her she just "didn't look enough like a duck". Ha![​IMG] He told her to get more ducks and they soon would all be her best friend. He must have been correct because she got two more ducks and now they ALL follow her around and are underfoot at all times. She was elated to have her "girl" back and a good excuse to purchase more "friends".[​IMG]

    Good Luck
