    How can I catch or retrieve a Mandarin hen duckling. She's about six months old, she escaped from a cage as she was being transported to a new environment. I have other Mandarins and have put one in a cage by itself, hoping to attract her to the cage where he is secured to the inside, I've left the door open so she can go in. She's not pinioned nor are her wings clipped.
    Any advice would be most appreciated. You can email me direct by going to [email protected]
    Thanks again,
    Kind regards
    GG

    Maybe try to look for her at night whenever one of my uncatchable birds get out i usually find them close to my other birds sleeping area.But, because it's a new area i'm not sure what she'll do.
