    I have a 3 week old duckling who spends her days in her coop while I'm at work.. I would like to get another duckling to keep her company, does anyone know if they take well to new ducks? Do you have any advice on how to keep my current duckling from getting too lonely outside?

    thanks!

    Quote:I have a only duckling too, rejected by her mama, she spends alot of time outside with the chicks and also goes around the adult ducks, but is also an indoor duck. I'd say if you can find a duck close to her age she would probably take to it pretty quick. you might put a mirror in the coop too, they love to look at themselves. [​IMG]

    Ok, thank you! I will try to find a good match. And I had noticed that when my duck is inside she just hangs out in front of my closet mirrors chirping at herself, very funny!
