    Hi there,

    Got more of a social issue then anything else. I had 2 pairs of call ducks, the male of the younger pair has disappeared. He never leaves his female so I can only assume since he can somehow fly with clipped wings something got him outside the garden.

    His female is rightfully still looking for him but I'm wanting her to stick with the other 2 ducks as I worry she is lonely. They are all sharing a duck house at night now that their is only one male, but during the day they don't interact.

    Will the remaining male adopt her and look after her or do ducks prefer just 1 mate. She is still eating and going in the pond but she is only a year old and I'd hate for her to be all alone.

    Any advice?
