That happend to my duck I feel like it's a way they want to be more attractive maybe because they want the roosters or drakes to notice them?? I'm clueless but after a while she did stop she even made wierd noises and quaked differently. But I'm pretty sure It will get better soon

I don't see her being broody
She might be 'thinking' about it tho.

Is she clucking?
Good question....tho if you are not familiar with broody behavior, you might not recognize the vocalization for what it is.

Do you have a 'rooster'?
Will she squat down on the ground when you touch her back?
