    I don't think most ducks and a lot of chickens like being hugged. But, I bet you can get them to take treats from your hand.

    That's a good age. I find that giving treats can win anyone's heart. :lol: Try offering them treats by hand. You have a great start to handling them frequently. Let them get used to your voice. Let them know that when they hear your voice, that you are safe and they find you comforting.

    G'Day from down under Humlet :frow Welcome!

    I am pleased you delurked and hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. There are some down the bottom of the page which are duck specific.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.
