The past week or so, our little black runner duck has developed a new habit. He races along side a person's legs and attempts to zig zag between their steps. So far my daughter and I have walked slowly to avoid flattening the little guy, but today he shot between my feet while I was carrying a big bucket (So I didn't see him) and he got booted a short way. When I stop walking and crouch down to pay attention to him, he wants his back and chest petted and he talks a lot, sometimes nibbling on an arm or leg. Is he in looooooove with us or just wanting attention?
