The golf course we live on in SC has taken in 9 Magpies. They were dropped off when the owner was moving and couldn't take them with her. My husband & I were worried since we found out these ducks were raised by a human, but all I know about ducks is what I've read on the internet. We've sort of been looking after them and I have no idea if what we're doing is correct and/or necessary. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Here's the routine so far: We feed them 6-7 cups mix of Flockmaster and cracked corn every morning. If the night is going to be cool (30F) we give them an evening snack. They live on a good sized pond and seem to feed a little from that. Would this be enough to sustain them? They have no overnight shelter and sleep between one of the condo buildings and the pond. The building is about 8 feet away from the water. I'm worried sick about predators but have no authority to build anything for them. There are a couple of foxes in our area. Could they escape to the water fast enough? They probably walk about 10 miles a day along the banks of the pond and alternate by swimming around. is this normal? I've tried my best to spread the word to the other residents about no bread - people seem to be cooperating. I'm thinking this isn't the ideal situation for these guys so we're trying to do the best we can. They're wonderful little ducks! Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
