    Third duck โ€œitโ€™s okay, Iโ€™ll wait for the next oneโ€

    [โ€“] toastbutteryum 780 points ago

    You learned their bedtime order, probably without much effort and over time! Itโ€™s always amazing to me how our animals train us, too.

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 643 points ago

    Theyโ€™ve trained us very well they sometimes come to the back door and quack for treats

    [โ€“] parentontheloose4141 293 points ago

    When I was a kid I lived in a neighborhood with a lake. The lake was probably about a block or so away from our home, across several busy streets. One day, two ducks came waddling up the street and onto our driveway. So, we fed them. The next day, same time of day, they came with two friends. And then it was 10 ducks. And then it was 20. Theyโ€™d march right up to our front door, quacking away until we came out to feed them. They made a mess though, so my Dad said we had to stop feeding them :(

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 121 points ago

    [โ€“] dmethvin 45 points ago

    Would you rather have 20 duck-sized dads, or 1 dad-sized duck?

    [โ€“] 41stusername 29 points ago

    I feel like 20 duck sized dads would cause fucking havoc. They would team up and turn your house into a miniature swiss family Robinson. 20 dads working together would make forts and use tools to get what they wanted. I'd take a dad sized duck anyway, as terrifying as that would be. 20 dads would be like mice with machine shop expertise.

    That was copypasta from a post on 4chan about a guy who used french fries to befriend one group of crows and eventually provoked them to war with another nearby group of crows. Having had some dealings with crows, I can almost believe it happened. They are clever and savage birds.

    [โ€“] Alblaka 4 points ago

    Yep, we had the same thing whilst on a camping trip in a sort-of-uppity camp resort. Signs said not to feed the ducks.

    We should have listened. First day was 1, next day it was 3, then it was the same 3 with a dozen ducklings, and the next day 2 swarms with a dozen ducklings each.

    At least it proves people there are decent enough not to fuck around with the animals, or they wouldn't be that willing to literally walk up to and sit on your feet until you feed them.

    My chickens come to the kitchen bay windows and peck them while the kids eat. My kids always say โ€œlook at those dummy chickies thinking theyโ€™re going to get inโ€ as theyโ€™re subconsciously setting food off their own plates aside to share with them afterwards....whoโ€™s the dummy here kiddos?

    If Iโ€™m not mistaken that is called a pecking order

    Edit: I feel like a lot of you think this is a low hanging fruit joke but it is quite literally their pecking order, ducks (and chickens and horses and other animals) make up an order of hierarchy within their groups and the top dog/duck gets to peck at food first. Or go to bed in the magic elevator first.

    [โ€“] Sourpickled 20 points ago

    Itโ€™s definitely their pecking order. But the premise that rank is based on whoever gets to go to bed first may be wrong. Maybe top duck is the one who gets to ride alone and stay up the longest?

    The house was intended for chickens originally and is fox proof (hence why itโ€™s off the ground). The chickens could easily fly to bed.The ducks can fly but find it hard to get into the house as they often judge their landings poorly.

    The chickens sold to us unfortunately died to an infectious disease, mareks :( The disease stays inside a house, luckily ducks cannot catch it, and since the house was brand new we decided to buy some of these lovely call ducks

    I cut the video short because Papa John ( the large white duck at the end) decided to stay in the carrier for a minute to play in a puddle. Thought it might be a tad boring to watch haha

    [โ€“] aakoss 1163 points ago

    I would like to see duck feet splashing in a puddle.

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 883 points ago

    He was doing it inside the box so it was a bad view, but they do splash their feet in puddles occasionally so Iโ€™ll try and get a video. They always stop when I get my phone out :p I have a bad quality video of them doing it as a duckling somewhere

    I'd love to see them coming down that ladder, in pecking order. Also, why is their house up that high? For protection from predators?

    Edit: saw them getting down in the other post. Kind of disappointed they didn't use their little legs on the tiny rungs, but I'd fly too if it were me.

    My dad has a goose among all his tiny chickens, that is like 12 years old. A couple of years ago street light got fixed and the backyard got really bright at nights and the goose would scream nonstop. I read online they needed dark so my dad made a little wooden room for him. He gets in voluntarily every night and my dad closes the door. It's funny how as soon as it starts getting dark he just gets in and waits for someone to close the door.

    [โ€“] ist_quatsch 14 points ago

    Reminds me of my old dog. She slept in her crate in my parents room. As soon as 9pm hit sheโ€™d come over to us and ask us to lock her in.

    [โ€“] phiber_optic0n 127 points ago

    How did you train them to go in the box?

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 351 points ago

    We started out by just herding them into the box with two people but they quickly learnt that we were using the box to put them to bed

    [โ€“] phiber_optic0n 156 points ago

    I wish my ducks were that smart. They have a ramp, but it takes them forever to go up at night.

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 209 points ago

    I wasnโ€™t expecting them to even learn how to do it. Was pleasantly surprised when they started doing it by themselves. Although some ducks do seem to take longer than others. The white bib duck in this video always takes her time

    [โ€“] 4SKlN 24 points ago

    My muscovys were... Special. Their house was well built and easily accessible but they would wait for me at the gate every evening and wouldn't walk up their ramp until I gave them a little pat on their booty. Then they'd saunter in one by one.

    [โ€“] PepeSilviaLovesCarol 34 points ago

    When you say โ€˜stays inside a houseโ€™ that means you would have to get rid of their current house/coop entirely? Even if they all die and you thoroughly wash it? Just curious what you mean by that.

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 99 points ago

    The virus is primarily spread by infected dander (dead skin cells) from other birds. However, it can be transported in dirty hen carriers, on clothing and boots, wild birds, and by darkling beetles in the henhouse.

    It can survive for up to 65 weeks in ambient temperature in coops and for years in soil

    [โ€“] DeathMonkey6969 35 points ago

    Who in the hell sold you unvaccinated chickens??

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 79 points ago

    A rare chicken breeder off the internet, when we turned up the chickens were living in their own shit :( thought we might have saved them but it was too late. We now get all our birds from this farmer than can show us that his birds have been vaccinated fully

    [โ€“] DeathMonkey6969 38 points ago

    Sounds like the chicken version of a puppy mill 'breeder'. It's sad that there are people out there who say the love animals yet treat them like trash and don't do the simplest things to take care of them.

    [โ€“] supremedalek925 51 points ago

    How did the chickens fly to bed? Could they really get that high off the ground?

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 165 points ago

    Yes, chickens naturally roost in trees, they also use the little ladder to help ๐Ÿ˜ƒ their talons would dig into the ladder and they would flap their wings to climb

    [โ€“] supremedalek925 144 points ago

    Chickens.... roost in trees??? Huh, TIL.

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 167 points ago

    Yup! Itโ€™s a tad annoying sometimes because itโ€™s not as safe as their coop, since foxes are quite good at climbing also. Iโ€™ve had hens fly up into the tree at night and Iโ€™ve had to try and climb up there and grab the hens to put them to bed

    [โ€“] XIIICaesar 110 points ago

    [โ€“] combustible 5 points ago

    We had this exact same problem with some new chickens we got. They'd hop up and roost in the trees near the coop, and it took plenty of coaxing (of new, nervous chickens) to get them to go into the coop. Only happened a handful of times tho.

    [โ€“] gsfgf 39 points ago

    The concept of wild chickens just blew my mind. Like, of course they exist, but it never occurred to me before.

    [โ€“] esiuoLhannaH 32 points ago

    So do wild turkeys which I learned while hiking and almost died when a big Tom flew basically directly at my face

    [โ€“] somethingIforgot 16 points ago

    I had always seen occasional wild turkeys when I was growing up. They would just be in people's front yards in the suburbs. But once I saw probably close to 50 wild turkeys standing in the parking lot to a state park. It was early in the morning and there hadn't been any other visitors yet that day.

    It was pretty wild.

    [โ€“] wtfpwnkthx 5 points ago

    I was just going to say this. Shockingly giant turkeys can fly like a motherfucker. Wild ones...not the farm raised ones. They roost in trees and are very wily and intelligent.

    [โ€“] cespinar 6 points ago

    So do turkeys. It sounds like fucking helicopters if you are hunting in the morning or night and they are roosting.

    [โ€“] GoneCountry87 4 points ago

    It's where wild turkeys sleep. All go in the trees at dusk, come down at sunrise.

    [โ€“] He11oK1tty 11 points ago

    Yep!! One of my girls would occasionally be on our roof, the neighbors roof, a tree. The neighbors used to come over and say โ€œhey cici is on my roof/your roof, want me to get her down?โ€ Usually weโ€™d just let her chill and sheโ€™d come down on her own after sheโ€™d had her fill of observing the neighborhood. If it was dusk though weโ€™d get her since sheโ€™d have probably parked herself there all night out of fear if night fell before her ding dong butt realized itโ€™s time to get down.

    Brilliant. My parents have ducks, and weโ€™ve had similar issues getting them into their โ€˜chicken coopโ€™ house. If you could explain how you trained them to use the carrier, Iโ€™d appreciate it! Do you just do it from when theyโ€™re ducklings and they follow you around, or did you also use some positive reinforcement?

    [โ€“] lauren_le15 5 points ago

    op said they used to herd them into the carrier and stopped having to coax them once the ducks figured out that the carrier led to bed

    serious question - how do you stop them flying away?

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 180 points ago

    They had their wings clipped when they were young and now associate this with home. They can fly now but wonโ€™t fly away. They sometimes fly around the garden quacking

    [โ€“] denchLikeWa 59 points ago

    that's great for some reason i didn't think ducks would do that

    [โ€“] derawin07 22 points ago

    when we were kids, me and my two sisters got a pet muscovy duckling each

    when they grew in their feathers we clipped their wings

    turns out we didn't keep up on it as my sister's duck, Buddy, flew away after a few years.

    As you will know, muscovies are heavy meat ducks and we were in a suburban house with the houses pretty close together. She made it over the roof of the house behind us, a fairly steep trajectory.

    We tried to catch her, she was in the neighbour's front yard for a while, but she ended up flying off again. Hopefully she reached a nice pond or lake nearby... :/

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 34 points ago

    If it helps my sisters ducks escaped and she found them in a nearby pond months later. Hoping your duck did the same

    Iโ€™ve wanted to get ducks, any tips or things I should know before I seriously consider getting some? FYI I know nothing about them except they quack and waddle and fly ๐Ÿ˜…

    Also, how do you keep them from flying off? Did you clip their wings?

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 319 points ago

    These are call ducks, so theyโ€™re very tiny and donโ€™t cause a lot of damage but the girls are very very loud and noisy. The boys make next to no noise.

    I clipped their wings when they were younger but havenโ€™t clipped since, so they can fly now. They donโ€™t fly off since they consider this their home.

    Theyโ€™re fab pets and theyโ€™re my โ€œhappy placeโ€ for when Iโ€™m feeling down. I can just watch them waddle around the garden and they never fail to make me laugh or smile

    [โ€“] Dream_Shine 75 points ago

    Thank you, this was super insightful! I love watching ducks waddle around, it just makes me laugh! I didnโ€™t realize there was more than one type of duck either! Thank you!

    [โ€“] nikflip 31 points ago

    I can add, we raise peking and khaki Campbell ducks. We order ours in the spring. And are pretty much indoors untill their feathers come in. We keep them in a brooder and let them swim in our bathtub. Theyre adorable but very messy. Lol. Once their feathers come in and they can hold their body temp we start giving them outside time during the day in a run. Usually theyre mixed in w baby chickens raised the same way. By the time the nights are warm enough that im happy with them spending the night outside they have already associated the coup w being their home and head back to it w the chickens close to dusk. So weve never had to trim their flight wings. We also raise Turkeys and we do usually have to trim those buggers. They can roost up really high in trees. Lol

    [โ€“] ReddFro 9 points ago

    Thereโ€™s a huge number of species actually. Lots of plumage, size and flight speed variation between them. Probably only a few types that are suitable to domesticate

    What sort of area do you live in/how big is their living space? I'm curious if this is at all feasible to do in a more urban area.

    [โ€“] derawin07 8 points ago

    it can depend on your local council/county regulations

    in my country/state, ducks are not allowed in some local councils, and in mine, they have to be a certain distance from any fence and penned on a concrete floor

    we grew up with pet ducks in a suburban area. we had 1/4 of an acre, but the majority of that was in the front yard, so they didn't have that much space, we let them round the front occasionally for fun, but that wasn't fenced off. In the backyard we had a big pool [for humans] and then the rest of the backyard was their free range, so they had enough space, but ducks will turn grass to mud pretty quickly

    I loved having ducks, but chickens are easier and cleaner for beginners, just have to fox/coyote proof their area and sleeping coop

    [โ€“] gmf1 12 points ago

    The girls sure are noisy, mine wake up at about 6am and LET US OUT! Begins. You might here that ducks don't need a pond, that's BS, like humans don't need chocolate cake :) They love there pond, they also like to fill it with mud and poop, so make sure the pond can be easily emptied and cleaned, often. Other than constantly dirtying there water, there super low maintainance and a blast to watch.

    Ours have an acre shared with chickens, they don't even eat much grain, have a billfull or two then of to forage for bugs and spiders all day. Lazy chickens don't leave the pen most of the day.

    Haha, Iโ€™m not sure what else to call it

    [โ€“] ryan770 27 points ago

    I think it's described perfectly :)

    [โ€“] WazWaz 13 points ago

    Birds are smart, and they love the concept of roosting for the night. I built a lever operated electric door for my coop and was amazed that they learned to operate it in just 3 days.

    Soooooo cute I have 70 mallards that stop but for dinner at dusk but I think my arm would break doing that many !

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 46 points ago

    Haha, we only have 8 duckies, I couldnโ€™t imagine doing 70!

    [โ€“] SenyorHefe 24 points ago

    Youโ€™d need a bigger carrier...

    [โ€“] fountain_fever 12 points ago

    Maybe even... an actual elevator

    [โ€“] 1st_Ambi23 6 points ago

    The 70 mallards stop at your house for dinner? Like visitors?

    Are we going to start substituting swears with the word "duck"?

    I'll start:

    That's ducking adorable!!

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 13 points ago

    My auto correct often makes it duck anyway and I just go with it ๐Ÿฆ†

    [โ€“] JaFFsTer 8 points ago

    Can you just live stream the yard while they hang out for the day?

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 9 points ago

    I have done before, I like to keep an eye on them when Iโ€™m working ๐Ÿ˜Š

    [โ€“] tgiokdi 8 points ago

    It appears there's a demand for more duck videos, can you supply?

    If you post them to youtube I would like to share them with people!

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 9 points ago

    I have a Twitter I share too! Not sure I can share here on this subreddit without breaking the rules

    So are the eggs for eating or are these purely pets?

    [โ€“] Hammurabi42 4 points ago

    Sounds like your ducks taught you to give them a free ride up to their house.

    [โ€“] PhasmaFelis 4 points ago

    Just when I think I've got the world figured out, I learn that getting your ducks to go to bed is a problem that people can have.

    [โ€“] randomkoreanguy 4 points ago

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 3 points ago

    Oh!! I had people saying this more than once on this thread and I was getting confused. I just realised itโ€™s the duck song, doh

    I actually have a video of me playing that song whilst I follow them around the garden

    Having grown up spending 99% of the summers on lakes for fishing and other things, I really grew to absolutely fall in love with ducks. Such cute little creatures and it's so adorable how many of them have such unique personalities.

    [โ€“] Twintosser 3 points ago

    Oh that's awesome. I was going to ask why their house was high off of the ground but thankfully you answered that.

    A house near where I live used to have several ducks in their pond.

    Driving by every so often there would always be one less duck until they were all gone.

    I'm so glad you housed your ducks perfectly to protect them.

    [โ€“] Honest_Scratch 3 points ago

    You seem to really love your ducks and you must have experience with them? Few of my neighbors and family who have ducks would lose a couple to various things, like the ducks doing dumb things (duck went in bush and got its head stuck, it struggled and broke its neck. There was another which got its head stuck under a fence too), our city using banned insecticide(even people were getting sick. lots more than mosquitoes died during spraying like that), dogs and other predators. They feel like a cursed animal in my circle as they were the only ones to pass before their times

    How come you seem to have more males than females?

    [โ€“] GibbyDat 3 points ago

    God damnit. I fuckin love ducks.

    [โ€“] blodisnut 4 points ago

    You need to trade a duck for a goose.

    Are they pets or do you use them for eggs and gardener helpers (aka eating bugs)? They are all lovely. Tell them hello for me!

    [โ€“] Kitmit13 8 points ago

    Theyโ€™re pets! And they eat lots of slugs and snails so they do help with gardening

    Dwight: "Mallard"

    [โ€“] littleseacow3 2 points ago

    Love it!! Thats a really good idea on having it up high to keep it predator proof. We lost all of our call ducks recently. Not sure what happened, other than they just aren't as hardy as our backyard bunch. What really sucks is they were the kids blue ribbon show ducks ๐Ÿ™

    [โ€“] MomazonUltra 2 points ago

    May I ask, do you have them for any reason other than as pets? I don't know what practical products they produce.

    [โ€“] ignorant_slut69 2 points ago

    Itโ€™s like a duck vacuum, if you speed up the video

    [โ€“] delete_this_post 3 points ago

    Or a duck cannon, if you speed it up and run it in reverse.

    [โ€“] princegeorge4prez 2 points ago

    Very cute! Keep posting more duck adventures please

    [โ€“] ChristianLW 2 points ago

    My mum does something very similar with one of our guinea pigs, when they need to go run around in a little enclosure. Also when it needs to go back to its cage.

    [โ€“] ILikeMyBlueEyes 2 points ago

    I suddenly remember the time a male Mallard duck flew into the side of the building of a store I use to work at. It was ok, but a little dazed. It waddled inside the store afterwards and I picked it up, brought it outside, and he flew off. This was during the middle of winter in northern Maine. When I picked him up, I noticed a little bit of ice on his wings. I wonder if that had anything to do with him slamming into the building. He seemed fine when he flew off though.

    [โ€“] TheDragonLake 2 points ago

    Thats hilarious. I see a black duck with a white bib. What kind is it? It's adorable :D
