So I went out this morning to see my duckos and as usual Penguin and Pigeon both ran right up to me for their pets. However, this time Penguin got the idea that whenever I stop petting her to pet Pigeon it would be a good idea to violently attack my hands and feet until I started petting her again. It seemed like the usual kind of playful nibbling but she was doing it very very hard! I got a couple bloody spots on my hands and on my feet and she just would not let up. Basically I did what I would do if a dog was playing a little too rough and I just locked her in the coop by herself for 30 minutes so she could have some time to reflect on her behavior After her 30 minutes in solitary I brought her back out and she is acting normal. My question is, if she does this or something similar again in the future does anyone know any other good ways to try and correct duck behavior?
