    Do you have any treats that she might like?

    I hope she'll find a safe place tonight and you'll see her in the morning.

    I would head out with a flash light and call for him. Watch your feet though. If you can't find him set out a small shelter, box or something, and put food and water in it. good luck

    Oh I'm sorry. I'm sure he's fine. All of the other answers were great ideas. Maybe you could carry the other ducklings in a closed box with air holes see if they attract him back. [​IMG] I hope you find him!

    So did you find Simon????

    I know how horrid they can be come night time. I had one left out the other night and did not know it. I was very surprised the next morning because they are usually all together and go into the coop at dark for me to close up.
