What happened to my duck?

ImageIf me and my pet duck, who weighs next to nothing, were placed far away from any gravity source and in such a way that our mutual attraction was negligible, would I see my duck accelerate away from me? If so, how fast?

Is the answer Yes due to the expansion of the universe?
