Tevye is our "Pig Pen". Even when there are plenty of pools around and he swims all day, as soon as he gets his clean self out into the world the dirt finds him. He usually has a feather or some down stuck on his bill with some poop frosting holding it there. This last weekend he looked especially bad, so even though it wasn't his turn, he got his second duck of the day treatment. We brought him in and let him splash around in the tub to his heart's delight and then brought him out on the comforter. Most of the ducks stand on the comforter and walk around a bit. They eat treats from our hands but are still kind of wary. Rhiannon was the first to lie down comfortably, but Tevye actually snuggled up to my wife and laid down right next to her. He let her kiss the top of his bill and forehead and stroke his back and neck. He actually stayed there about an hour until it was time for us to take him out to join the flock. (Since it was the weekend, we got him in early enough to let him swim, preen and completely dry out, socialize - about 3 hours - and get him out with his flock before bed time.) When we had the ducklings, they were mostly cuddly, but when they hit their teen years it was like starting over again. They all trust us now and are usually within 3 feet of us when we are in the yard, but Tevye is the first adult duck who has cuddled with one of us on his own.
