hi we were given a duckling yesterday and would like to know a little more about it.
You're going to have to post a picture.
sorry thought i did
Looks like a Rouen. Did you get just one? There is some special care involved with having a single duck. I suggest you do a search to find some old posts about it.
Here's another great post about duckling care.
yes but were going out today to find another i wass reading about a single duck and think itd be better with a friend
Yes, it will definitely be much happier with a friend. Please do that!
Too young to tell sex at this age (without vent-sexing of course, which should only be done by an experienced person), you'll have to wait until their adult voices start to come in around 6 weeks of age. Females "quack" or honk, males have a quieter, raspy voice. Males will keep their baby voices for much longer than the females. I've had females start sneaking in little honks in between their baby "peeps" as early as a couple weeks old.
thank u every where within 100miles of me was out of ducks hopefully we give her enough attention until tuesday or wednesday when they get another delivery thanks for the raising duck info too
