I love hearing about everyone’s ducks, they are all so different and quirky. My girl is sassy, quacks like a maniac when I let her out in the morning. She lunges out the door like a tiny race horse My drake Cheese is excited too but he always acts dignified and stoic. I did notice that Quackers was especially vocal this spring, she was territorial and didn’t like the wild mallards coming in her yard. She tried being a little broody, but eventually decided that it was too much work. Mine live in my suburban back yard as well, but the neighbors like them. They’re not as loud as most dogs! I’ve noticed that Quackers can be moody, sometimes she can’t get enough of me, and sometimes she acts like a teenager. Hope you stick it out and enjoy them for a long time.
