We have a mallard my husband got as a pet, it used to follow us around and love to be held, it'd jump on us and sit... but now she's terrified of us and wants NOTHING to do with anyone. We got her a peking duckling to keep her company a while back, and she's ruined him. He was always sweet and interested in us. Its insanely obnoxious to walk out in the yard and be no where NEAR the ducks and hear them freaking out and running away just because we're walking around. I've had ducks before and never had this problem, it HAS to be the mallard. Right? Anyone want a free pair of ducks?
