Hello again! Well the fantastic news is that my 3 1/2 week old duckling (that was mauled by a black bear) is recovering beautifully! (See original post here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=543254 ) Though she is far from healed up enough to move back out to the coop, I am trying to think ahead as to what I should do when it comes time to reintroduce her to our 4 hens and her 2 other duckling "siblings". Will they remember her? Pick on her? What should I expect? Also, since she's recuperating so wonderfully, I worry about her getting lonely being in a crate in the house with us...At first I figured isolation was best since she wasn't able to move about and she's got a big open wound on her back and we didn't want her stressed out, but now she just peeps and peeps unless I am holding her...any suggestions? I have to admit, I've gotten quite attached to this one and it's going to be hard to put it back outside! I love snuggling with her, watching her preen herself and listening to the cute noises she makes! It's too bad she can't be an indoor duck!
