    Im raising 7 turkey poults, one chick, and 4 mallards. I let out the poults and chick today, and decided to let the mallards out too. They bolted. I had 4, and i caught 3 right away. One ran under my deck. So, i put the poults and chick away, and the mallards in a cage by the deck to lure the other lone mallard. Well, i heard him peeping. Luckily enough, my teen stature could fit under the deck, and i could hear the noise getting closer and closer. I was moving wood left and right! I then flashed the light up, and there he was, about 5 feet away. I shut it off and crept forward. Then i snatched him! I was so happy! I will make sure to have a cage next time i let them out!

    my rouens are the same way, they never let you catch them anymore. When they were ducklings they always would follow us around and climb on our laps, but not anymore. [​IMG]
