    Out to pasture
    Ducks have a lot of predators like chickens. Dogs probably are threatening to him. Do you only have one duck? He would probably be less stressed if he was with a flock of other ducks.

    That's a good questions to ask over on the duck forum. TwoCrows gave you a link to it back in March (see post #3). Good luck!
