7 baby ducks hatched in the pond behind my house and I've watched them grow over the past few months. There's the mom, 3 females and 4 males. I noticed they started flying a few weeks ago. They have stayed together the whole time but this morning I noticed one of the males missing. D of you think he went to another neighborhood pond? Is it normal for them to leave their mom? There are no other ducks in the pond so do they all eventually leave? I'm trying to understand because I'm now worried something happened to him. Can anyone she'd some light on their behavior in the wild? Do you think he will ever come back? Do they normally move around from pond to pond?
