I found this little guy being attacked by crows. Three of them. Picking it into the air and dropping it again, baby duck would run for all it was worth and they would just keep catching it and repeating the process. I ran over and grabbed the baby before they could kill it.
I watched for mama duck or any other siblings for the next 5 hours until dark but nothing to be seen or heard.
I feel terrible for this baby, its obviously scared and wants its mama but i cant find her. I have him in with my new chicks in the brooder with heat, food and water.
Is it possible to raise a wild duckling with chicks?
Will he eventually bond with us/the chicks and be happy or will he be scared forever because he was hatched by mother duck?
Any help/advice would be appreciated. We've had chickens for a while now but never ducks.
