    So I've got two White Campbell babies who are both just about a week under four months and lately they've started doing something really strange. They crouch really low to the ground, stretch out their neck so it's straight and sort of flatten themselves so their back and wings are perfectly flat. Then they make some sort of low, short quacks? They also only seem to do it around me? XD just getting curious about this.

    Yes, they are "soliciting" you. They think you are a suitable mate. It's an honor, really. ;)

    Is this something that only the females do?

    Yes. They are laying down and getting into position for the drake to easily climb on top. ;)
