Identifying Age of duckling
my friends mom found a baby duck this morning, he was attacked by other ducks. Im guessing it happened because he was drifting with a family that wasn't his own, so the mother got aggressive?
Either way, he was being killed, so her mother took pity and rescued it, and brought it home. Its doing much better now thankfully, so i have a question.
Should she put the duck back at the pond where she found it?
should she give it to a local farm where he can play with lots of other ducks?
finally, what kind of duck is this, and HOW OLD IS IT?
His peach fuzzed head makes me think hes very very young. hes tiny, clumsy, and doesnt quack yet, only chirps.
Heres a photo.
thank you in advance.
