baby Muscovies

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Help! my husband found a baby Muscovy running around after the mother and other chics left him. he didnt leave his nesting tree fast so they took off. now we are raising it in my apartment until big enough to fly and take care of him self. in the mean time i want to  make sure he will be equipped with what he needs in the wild ( golf course he was found on and my husband works at so he will keep an eye on the baby). should i start feeding him minnows now? i have a kiddy pool for my dog that i can fill up and put the minnows in.right now he is on starter freed. any info on raising this duck and if he can/should eat minnows will be helpful.

 

Thanks!

Bethanie
