    Hi please help, in the summer me and my mum got 4 baby ducks and we've raised them so we've grown attached to them but now one of the females won't stop shouting every now and then and now my parents think we should get rid of them. I really don't want to as I'm sure there must be a way to make her quieter and I really love them

    What kind of ducks? Is she angling her head down and walking furiously when she quacks. Is she laying eggs?

    Every bevy has a spokewoman although some breeds are louder than others. I don't know of a way to keep them quiet other than perhaps limiting their view of what they may perceive as danger or replacing them all with a quiet breed like a Muscovy.

    They're all khaki Campbell's and the two females are laying. She stands really tall and shouts every now and then.
