    They don't hate you, they probably just didn't understand what you wanted to do with them.... My ducks act like that alot and I have had them for 7 years. The high water might have scared them if they had never been to it or seen it before, I have to let mine try new things on their own. They do better if I'm not involved in it....

    I agree with Miss Lydia - sometimes I just have to give them a big hint and then wait, and wait, and wait, and finally someone gets it! Then they all get it!

    On the other hand, when one figures out how to misbehave, they all figure THAT out, too!

    Maybe some peas or other treats will help mend fences with the ducks (my ducks told me to suggest that [​IMG])

    Yep to the misbehaving part too...Mine don't care for peas, but if I bring out the meal worms{dried] they have expensive taste, they will follow me any where.

    Ducks don't hate. That's the domain of we humans. They may be a little confused by or scared of you, but they will get over that.
