We had two ducks, a male Rouen and a female Khaki Campbell. The female just got out and went into our big pond. She dove under but couldn't find her way back up under the ice. My little girl saw her dive under and feared the worst. She ran out immediately and tried to lure the duck back to the shore of the pond. The duck swam here and there, but never towards the opening. We tried hacking through the ice as far in as we could, but we were too late. It is heartbreaking. Now my little girl is worried about the drake. He is wandering around everywhere looking for his mate. Should we give him to a friend who has ducks, or will he be okay? Thanks.
