    I have never raised a duckling before. We rescued an abandoned duckling/gosling from our local lake that has both ducks and Canadian geese after several failed attempts to find it's mother. Does anyone know how to tell the difference between a duckling vs a gosling? Also, I am planning on taking this lil guy to a wildlife rescue this coming week. Does anyone have any experience with doing this? I am curious to find out if it is a successful integration. Thanks for your feedback.

    If you post a picture we can tell you if it's a duckling or a gosling. Taking it to a wildlife rescue is the best thing to do :)
