Are Your Ducks Afraid Of You? Here’s What to Do

When ducks appear agitated or panicky when a person approaches them, they may be scared of that person.

Here are some reasons why ducklings might be afraid of you, and much more.

Their mother is scared of you.

If the mother of your ducklings gets unsettled around you, then there is every chance the ducklings will follow suit.

You are not approaching them correctly.

If you move towards the brooder standing and looking all huge, the ducklings might instinctively be afraid of you.

They are still too young.

When ducklings hatch, you have to let them imprint on you so they can get comfortable around you.
