    Hi everyone, I'm very upset to go into my duck coop to find my new mandarin male duck dead, I got the pair from an auction three days ago. I have other domestic ducks and pheasants and peafowl, I don't know what happened, I assume the mandarins eat regular duck pellets, please help, now my female is alone, maybe someone can sell me a pair or a male or tell me what I might be doing wrong? Or maybe it was sick before hand ? It seemed spunky the whole three days, thank you

    Maybe he was very stressed or sick. Look in your local classifiedsvfor a male Mandarin.

    Best of luck!
