Help! I found a baby duck!
I could really use some assistance.
Literally a baby duck walked right up basically to our front door today. We searched and searched and can not find a sign of a mother duck or any other ducklings.
He is a tiny little thing, no feathers, and surely could not survive the night alone, so I brought him/her in and put it in a cage with some paper towels ect.
I have no idea what kind of duck it is.. Could be one that was sold from the farm supply here, or could be a wild duckling.. Any way to tell?
I went to the feed store and they sold me some starter mix, but the duckling doesnt have any interest in it. I put a small dish of water in, but the little guy just walked through it and got all wet and cold. Dried him off, and he loves to be held. Little guy jumps all around trying to get to someone. How do I take care of this guy correctly?
I am a cat breeder and used to breed cockatiels so I am capable of providing the best care, if I can find the right information on what is the best thing to do.
Thanks in advance!
