Hello, I have had my male Pekin duck for about four months now. He was raised by me with no other ducks so he became very attached to me and followed me around everywhere. We recently got three more ducks, I can't remember their breed, and we keep them with him, he doesn't like them very much so he just stays away from them, we keep them all in a very large pen but I take Brodie my Pekin duck out to go in the kayak. He has started not following me as much now. He still cries for me to come out to him and will cry when I leave, so is this just his age or is he starting to become unattached to me? Also when I go to pet him he will lay down, and he does this when I take a handful of water and out of on him and he is in the pool. What is the reason for him doing this, is he scared of me? He still seems to like me and cries when he sees me so I will go up to him, but lately he hasn't been as friendly and doesn't run up to me anymore. Any suggestions?
