In the Brooder
- Jun 17, 2017
I just bought two four month old pekin from a woman who hatched and raised them, but they are skiddish and run from me. They panic when I try to pick them up or pet them or even offer food from my hand or a dish I put in front of them. I have raised ducks before and mine were very friendly to people, and they were very loving towards me. Of course they had imprinted on me but they were comfortable around other humans too. So I am wondering why these new ducks are so scared of people, and wondering how I can get them to warm up to me and become affectionate? Advice greatly appreciated!!
