Hello from Colorado, We have two ducklings that are now 8 weeks old. A Blue Swedish named Pearl and a Silver Appleyard named Blanche. We are hoping to get some geese and chickens later on. As a new owner this website and forum has been very helpful to me already, so thank you! I'm wondering what the best way to get ducks to not be afraid of you. Our poor ducklings had a bad Pasteurella bacteria infection when we first got them, and to administer antibiotics we had to push the pill down their throats which was not fun for both parties involved. I feel like now even though they are healed and have been for several weeks, they still don't trust us. If we go near them they quack loudly and run away. It makes me so sad! Any ideas on how to win them over?
