      Just saw your new picture of Marshmallow and your dog. I think at this point its safe to assume Marshmallow thinks she is a dog.

        yes its ok :) If ducks are not with other ducks they assume they are the same as whomever they spend the most time with. Your dog looks like he has accepted being mama duck for now.

      Ducks have an insatiable appetite and they love to make a mess when they eat. Super important that you always provide a deep dish of water when you give food as ducks need to wash the food down with water else they can choke. Keep us posted.

      AWWWWW... OK can I help? 1st thing is you need a second duck. Ducks are very social and they require other ducks to be truly happy. as much as I love my ducks (I have 5 of them) I realize that they will never love me the way they love another duck.

        Could I have a pic of the ingredients? That's more so of what I was after.

        The thing is that they gave me the food in a clean plastic bag. I just asked for duck food at the swamp meet and they gave me that

        That is an adorable pic. Some do have single house ducks and they say it works. I think having a buddy is best so she can know she is a duck and socialize with one of her own.
