Hi, Let me start by saying I know nothing about ducks. I've recently moved into a new home on a small lake that had two Pekin Ducks. The woman who owned the ducks (my neighbor) has moved and I was left with the care of these two domestic ducks. Unfortunately, the female of this pair just got killed. Again, I know next to nothing about ducks but I can tell the remaining male is lonely. I thought finding him a new friend might be a good answer. I researched and found someone who has grown ducks for sale. The ducks for sale are 18 months old, mine is about 4-5 years old. Is this a good idea just bringing in another duck? Should I get only one or maybe 2 or 3? Can they just be released on our lake and make it? I know my last question probably has a lot to do with how they were raised. I'm at a loss and just trying to learn and do what I can to help this poor lonely duck out. I'm also open to finding him a new home if that would be best for him... Any answers out there? Thanks!
