I have gotten a pair of male and female Runner ducks about a week ago (9 weeks old), that I have been letting have run of my garden (probably about 15x20 meters?). The first couple of days the ducks were very fearful and refused to come out of their coop (an important thing to note is that the coop is on our patio, near the sliding glass backdoor) . From then, they seemed happy to leave their coop, and walk the length of the patio, but have refused to go into the grassy area of the garden (where there is ample places to forage, and also a pool that I had bought for them). My first question is basically, do you think the ducks will happily go into the garden over time? I mean I have had them only a week haha. And the one time they did go down the garden (out of fright, mind you, because I was cleaning their coop) they found the pool and loved it... But haven't seemed to have the courage to cross the garden and go back. My second question is regarding their behaviour currently. I am concerned about the fact that the ducks seem to be stood by the sliding glass door quite often. If they are not resting in the coop, drinking, eating or splashing about/washing in their smaller water tub, they will be stood outside the glass door looking in. I have tried opening the door, but they just waddle back into their coop (they are still very skittish when approached, but relax when you sit down). I'm not sure what this behaviour indicates? I clean their coop once a day, put fresh water out every day, and make sure they always have food to eat, but seeing them stand at the door makes me feel guilty, as though I'm failing them somehow as I don't know what they're trying to ask me for. Any input would be very much appreciated, thank you!
