Baby ducks, I'm assuming these babies are Malllards, But I'm not quite sure. I hatched them myself so I'm there only mommy. I can tell one of them is the "leader" of the pack because everyone follows him. However the "leader" follows me. I was just wondering when they get older, will they take off for the winter but come back for the summer? Or will they stay with me forever? OR should I send them off to there "real Mommy" You see something was eating the eggs from there real mommy and the neighbors took what was left and gave them to me to hatch.. 4 baby ducks later, I have new kids, but I'm don't know if I should return them to her or continue to raise them myself. Here are my new kids: They just turned one week old today..
