    Like...he randomly gets up and runs around screaming ._. Just suddenly, like he be sleeping and just Boom! Jumps up and runs around screaming and then calms down and drinks water. Should I be worried?

    Welcome to BYC!

    What breed of duck is it?

    How old is the bird?

    Does he have any other issues besides this?

    I randomly got him as a present so I'm not sure of breed, :/ I was told he was with a bunch of yellow ones, He's black and white though, I have noticed green feathers coming in on the wings.

    For Age...around...well got him on Christmas, was like 2, weeks old at that time, so now he should be around a month and a half.

    The only problem he ever had was that he injured his leg, when trying to follow me up the stairs but he seemed to have recovered well from it

    Unless he starts showing other symptoms I honestly wouldn't be too concerned at this point about it.

    Sounds like what my Runners do when they're hormonal - either mating or brooding.
