    i went out to see if dad needed help with the van and if the cas wasen't up to any good i wouldent have even noticed this black and yellow baby duck running across the driveway went about ten yards down the drive till dad cought it with carefully planned direction coordination.

    now that it's presumably safe in a cardboard box on the porch i'm wondering cause perents wond go to the stor till tomarrow and i'm worried about what to feed it if there are options.

    i've picked him up myself and held him a while and i think it likes me. says the bird wisperer. :S

    If you have chick starter feed that will work for now

    for a wild duck you should get game bird food. nothing medicated at all.

    thanks, my sister just now told me this. she'd be the ones to take care of my baby birds till they get a certain age then they move in with the big girls and boys.

    how much are kiddie pools these days?
