i am leaving my ducks for the weekend for my mom to take care of because i am going on vacation. problem is she is not very attentive... but i am hoping that she can follow the simple instruction of feeding them 3 times a day. last time i left ducks for her to take care of, i came back and 4 were dead because my mom left them in the sun for too long. they were still hatchlings. i was so upset. this time my ducks are much older so she'd really have to try to kill them, especially since they free-range. do you guys ever have this problem? having to go away for a weekend and leaving your animals for someone who doesn't like them/ doesn't really take care of them like you would.
