My 7 call ducklings are now 3 weeks old and very independant from their mom. I tried to hold one this past week and she attacked me biting my hand. The duckling was beside himself squeaking and flailing so i walked away from the pen. Mom was running up and down the wire and the duckling was even more panicked. So i reluctantly put him back and now they no longer run to the door to greet me Up until this point i had never picked them up as i didn't want to cause them any stress. Did i make a mistake should i have picked them up and held them before now? When should i remove mom to ensure i can form a bond with them? I really want them to be people friendly as i will be selling them when they get older.
