    [​IMG] they said it's about 2 weeks. In the cage with him were mallards and little yellow ducklings, so could he be a mix?

    How cute does the mallard like it's new baby sibling?

    He hasn't been introduced yet. I had another baby a couple of weeks ago, but it died and he wasn't very interested in it.

    Just remember to do intro slowly especially when introducing very young with older ducklings size can really make a difference and it takes time for them to warm up to each other, and sorry for your loss. Post again in about a week with pics of your new duckling they change so much over the course of a few weeks and hopefully others will also give you an idea of breed too.
