An abandoned Muscovy duckling came into our care 6 months ago and we decided to raise/love him and make a further decision on what to do when he was a bit older. Now at 6 weeks old he is my ultimate companion and I can't bear the thought of sending him to a duck farm or rehoming him. At our house we are unable to have pets but luckily our landlord understood and has agreed to let us keep him (as long as no other pets join him). We built a beautiful coop outside including a pond, nesting area, worm farm etc - duck heaven! The problem is that now we have tried to put him outside during the day he HATES it. He waits and claws at the fence all day and panics when we go to work which breaks my heart. All I can think of is little Luda while I'm at work and it's caused a lot of anxiety. He is too big to keep inside all day (he still sleeps/hangs out with us inside). I feel like he needs a friend or I'm being cruel. What does everyone else think? Is it just the new change of scenery and will he will adapt?
