    LOL...yes, it worked. Adorable baby!! My guess is Muscovy, but I'm not real good at identifying ducklings.

    I'll tag some members that can help.

    Thank you all for the great info!
    I was able to post a couple photos above!

    I picked up some non medicated chick starter at the store and I can't get him to eat any. I've tried leaving it dry...and soaking it. He's not interested.

    Is there any tricks on getting them to eat???

    @RavynFallen
    Could this be one of the wood ducks you guys are doing talking about in the other thread?
