    Ok all of you should know my baby pearl. anyways. i now have 8 ducks and 2 geese. Pearl and maggie love me and let me hold them. pearl i raised from hatching, that why she is so friendly, and maggie i bought from someone and i messed with her making her friendly. now my others are not friendly. they run from me [​IMG]. i can pick my african goose up( when i can catch her). how can i make them love on me? treats? i spend alot of time with all of them.

    Hi Vox, I can't really help you much, but I'm glad to see that Pearl is doing well. Didn't you also have a duck named Shadow and a silkie chicken, too? How are they?

    I have one like that too. i just really wish i had the ability to communicate with him and tell him everything is fine lol. he has improved a lot though. the first few weeks i had him, i wouldnt leave food out but i would hand feed him only. i cut zucchinis, cucumbers, hard boiled eggs, and tomatoes into little strips and would feed both of them a strip one by one. i dont know if he will ever be as social as my girl that i raised from a duckling, but he has improved drastically since i got him. it just takes a lot of patients...and food!! lol
