Good morning (or evening) everyone, I have a situation with my 6-8 month old Pekins. We recently had a tragic loss, a dog broke into my backyard and chewed up 1 of my 3 ducks and injured another pretty severely. With my ducks injury, I had to keep her inside in a large basket with towels because she was heavily sedated thus separating her from her sibling. Well good news everyone is back together but they won't forage! They've gotten so used to me hand feeding them that they don't go out and forage in the backyard! Now I know the obvious answer is "Stop feeding them whenever they start getting loud!!" Well I can't!! I'm very scared my neighbors are going to snap one day because my girls can get so loud and I'm in such a close proximity to my neighbors that I can't risk using the independence, or "cry it out" method. I don't want to lose my ducks because they're squawking at 7am. It's only a matter of time before a neighbor files a complaint.They just don't go to the yard and forage like they used to since the attack. Help!
