last night my husband forgot to put the ducks in, when he went out to their pen they were no where to be found, I assumed they found a place to bed down for the night which they have done before. However, this morning just then hen showed up in her pen, in they house was a single egg (my first duck egg, yeah). Still no sign of the drake as of now... she will occ. call for him. Now I’m worried, I know ducks are social birds, will she be okay this winter with just her? I do have a friend with have a friend with ducks that might be able to add her to her flock of various ducks.... looking for thoughts..... I feel like a poor duck mama.... Side note: back story, I started with 4 mallards early summer, 2 hens took off end of September, I clipped one wing of the drake and hen that were left the first week in October, 3 days ago the male was able to do short low flights. I have searched my property and have no signs of foul play... no loss of feathers, no signs of blood trails. They have gone missing prior to wings being clipped and come back two days later. Is it possible he was able to fly?? Is it normal for the drake to leave the hen??
