    Thanks! :)

    Do you have any experience on khaki Campbells? They don't seem to be as friendly as the yellow one and they seem a little skittish. Will me handling them help?

    I have had Khaki camobells,and still have a 3 year old hen,about to be four.Their great little ducks with big attitude.Ducks do not bond as well with humans when other ducks are present,but as ducklings their pretty friendly.Helding and hand feeding will help them,A lot.Just talking to them does to.I had 2 ducklings ince who would literally follow me around the yard,they looked up to me,and would nibble on emy clothes,but once they became order they grew from me,but still on iccasion talked to me and ate out my hands.

    Did you order a particular gender? I ask because I raised two small groups of khakis and both times the male in the group was more friendly when they were little. Mine all received a lot of time and treats and are very friendly now.

    Interesting!
    I will continue hand feeding and handling them.
    The yellow one seems very attached to me already, when I leave it calls for me, when I go up to the brooder it looks up at me and comes to me and tries to get out of the brooder.


    No particular gender, I got them at TSC and they're not sexed.
