I have 14 running ducks and they don't do much but , quack all day and chase each other. And when do they leave there mothers? There already full grow ducks and they have all there feathers but still hang with there mother? Do these ducks run is that why they have there name? There always looking for water. We have a pool and one mom duck and 8 ducklings grown up will get in the pool and just quack.
