    So sorry about your other duckling. I just read your other post and it looks/sounds like it had a bad respiratory infection. How is your other duckling? Breathing and acting normally? Eating well?

    Are there no ducklings available to buy where you are? You can check local rescue centers, online sites like Craigslist or Blocket, etc.

    She will really need a friend as soon as possible. Ducks are flock animals and do not handle being alone very well. Unless you can spend 24/7 with them, they will freak out and scream/pace whenever you leave the room. They will always be stressed out when you are not with them, so I would work on getting her a new friend as soon as you possibly can. Good luck!
