I had 3 lovable Indian Runner Ducks, but one, Max, has vanished....I believe, duck-napped. My most timid and beautiful blue-eyed white runner has gone missing and believe has been swiped by drunky college kids en route home from bar. The road I live on is in process f getting gas and water mains replaced as well as sidewalks so people walking home have been having to walk through people's yards. They absence of any feathers/blood makes me believe this wasn't work of a stray dog. Anyway I have posters up, contacted humane society, and game warden but no luck, and sad to say but it's been 5 days now and I fear I may not see him again. Well I thought I'd be the most broke up about this but it seems Max's brothers have taken this much harder than me. For the last 5 days they haven't entered their duck house once and I only saw them in their pond 2x (most days they will spend hours in the water) They are eating but not out of my hand which they've never shied away from me before. I cleaned both their house and pond out, hoping the sight of crystal clear water will be too hard to pass by, but they remain uninterested. What's the most depressing is that they spend the majority of their time by the front gate, pacing, sleeping and quacking, as if they are waiting for Max to come home. Is it possible that they are THAT depressed...do ducks get depressed? I'm sure whatever happened to Max was witnessed by them since they never leave eachother's sides, so could they be traumatized by the duck-napping? Has this happened to anyone else, and does anyone have suggestions to offer to help my boys?
