Showing Waterfowl does not begin when a member enters the judging ring. It starts as soon as your ducklings
are hatched and requires the member to take the time to work with the birds. Practice makes perfect and if a
member feels comfortable with showing his or her ducks then showmanship will be fun and rewarding.
The day your ducklings are hatched is the day they start to be handled. This will get all of them used to
people, and being handled for showing them.
Part from http://www.gov.ns.ca/agri/4h/manuals/wa ... repare.pdf

Would I be best to follow this advice and how much handling is enough or too much?

Good to find details of exhibiting waterfowls most I have found is on chickens and I know you can apply much but still nice to have info just on the water lovers

I thought this was good

SHOWMANSHIP GUIDE
A waterfowl show person is one who has learned the art of selecting, fitting and presenting waterfowl to
advantage at the show. The confidence and ability displayed by the member and the bird’s response suggests
previous work done with the bird. Knowledge of the show person in response to questions about parts,
defects, qualifications, breed, and variety characteristics and the appearance of the bird shows an ability to select and fit it for show
