Have any of you got a duck that was not socialized to humans? Were you able to tame it? I had three pekin ducks a friend gave me from a straight run she got. These weren't little babies when she got them and hey all ended up being males. They were so scared of me from day one they'd literally hurt themselves to keep away from me so it got to a point where I gave up trying to give them tractor time because it was too much for them (plus it made the chickens riled up and they'd turn around and attack them which was hilarious but not if you're a duck). It made coop-life very difficult and despite two months of daily treats, showers, tub time they never settled in. They were less afraid of my dog than me. I just "got rid of" (its late, can't think of a nicer way to say it) two of them. I have one left. I think its a male, though it doesn't have the curly drake tail. Anyway, once the other two were gone I put him in the tractor with the chicken and.. He immediately calmed down. I have them on the porch sleeping in a dog crate at night because I'm still working on "coop 2.0" and the hen and duck are sleeping together, side by side. When my SO came home the duck didn't go on a fear-induced rampage. Do you think now with the other ducks gone I could ever get him to a point where I could actually walk up to him without him shivering and bashing himself into walls? I don't want to hold him on my lap and cuddle with him (hen would get jealous anyway ) I just want him to have a good life, and I'd like to keep him as a "watch-duck" because if nothing else they were great at sounding the alarm.
