    Our runners we used to have when they were ducklings would follow us around our house!

    My runner Prince (indoor duck) will jump up on the couch almost like a dog and lay next to me and bury his head in my neck and want to cuddle [​IMG] My other indoor duck (black swedish) whistles lol

    I don't have my own ducks, but I got a report from someone about a wild mother duck with 7 ducklings. She lived near a boat dock and, one day, led them all out onto the dock and jumped off. Then, she gave a big quack and waited until each duckling had jumped off one by one. When one would jump off, she would move aside until the second one would jump off, etc.

    Just recently, I saw her on a sidewalk with her now grown ducklings. She flew off a nearby ledge into the water, quacked, and one by one the ducklings flew down to her, except for two. Those two walked around the wall to a small beach where they waded in. Mom went up to collect them and bring them back to the others.

    My 3 month old Pekin girl pecked my dog right in the butt through a fence and sent the dog through the roof. Not to worry, we have since installed hardware cloth so the duck doesn't continue to put herself in danger. It was really funny though!

    My little blue runner is about a month old and if I sit down and herd her towards me she will climb into my lap and talk to me and cuddle. Her cayuga "sister" not so much..
