My husband was out fishing and as usual our ducks would swim around following the boat begging for treats. This time he noticed an odd ball.... a dark colored duckling with the group. We only have pekins and a white muscovy... so this was defintely not a hatchling from them. We're pretty sure he's a wild thing and his mama hatched and was either killed or flew off leaving a lone duckling behind. Though my ducks pretty much are paying him no mind, do you think they would adopt him and he'd be ok? Or am I just better off catching him, feeding him until he's big enough and releasing him? Though, there is no guarantee he didn't belong to perhaps a neighbor's duck and wondered off onto our pond either. I can't be sure as to what he is until I catch him... hoping a turtle doesn't get him first!?
