Some people we know who raise Muscovy ducks for meat have a lone rejected duckling whose siblings were all killed by a fox. I'm going to take it and it can be in the brooder with my Silkie chicks at first. The duckling is about 1 week old; the Silkies are several weeks old. If it doesn't work out, I'll move him/her to a separate brooder. Anything I absolutely need to know?? I own "Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks" and do know somewhat about ducks. So exciting ~ !!!!
