    My two Indian Runners, Wayan and Ketut are very affectionate. We always cuddle up and they nibble and preen me.

    However over the last couple of days, I've noticed when I'm not sitting with them, they find an item of my clothing and sit on it.
    First it was my sarongs, then my shirt, then my hat and last night sitting on top of my thongs ( flip flops, Aussies call them thongs). I can't imagine a pair of rubber sandals being that comfortable....

    Indyrun, my ducks would do this too when they were inside :) ! They would go and sit in all my laundry on the floor and snuggle in it. They must love you very much, so sweet.

    I've heard of other people's ducks doing this with their slippers, especially imprinted house ducks.

    Good to know they don't just love me for the treats I give them!

    They have just turned one month old. Still not aware of their gender but I'm suspecting I have a boy and a girl.
    They are like my babies, I end up getting hardly anything done because I spend all my time with them. I've taught them words, they both know their name and know which bowl is their treat bowl. As soon as I get the bowl they go crazy for it! They also run after the mealy worm and cricket containers.
