Yesterday, I went out and bought 3 Khaki Campbell ducklings. They are probably 4 days old today. They were with their mom in a large yard and we had to chase them and catch them with a net (sounds a lot worse than it actually was!). They were/are basically wild as they were not handled before this point and their mom was also only simi-tame. Two of the ducklings while obviously not tame don't mind being held too much. The other one is the problem maker. She bites whenever I pick her up and will even assume a defensive position hissing and bitting at me when I put my hand into the brooder. While her bites don't hurt right now, I don't want her to bite one of my children and freak them out (especially since the ducklings were meant as a surprise and a homeschooling project for them!). Nor do I want her to grow up with the habit of bitting. Any ideas? I have started holding her and talking to her softly. I plan on doing this quite often over the next week (or more!) with the hope of taming her down a bit. Even if she is never a duck that likes to be held I need her not to bite people. Thanks!
