We got 4 duckllings on Friday and it took all the way until today (tuesday) before they were comfortable enough to follow us around the house.It was fun and exciting for my daughter who has been trying to be big sister, but now we have another hurdle to jump and i need some advice on how to go about it. I have looked at all the sites and i know that i am picking up and holding them correctly but they still struggle and want to jump down and will bearly let you pet them. I have tried to hold them for at least 10 minutes each but I feel like I am making them more mad in the process. we spend an hour each night as a whole family (husband, daughter, dog & cat included) with them and we all handle them individually as the day goes on. Is there anything else that we can do to make them more friendly towards us and let us pet or hold them?
