    Ming Ming is back with his/her family, i nursed MM back to health after 1 1/2 months and after careful consideration(and alot of pushing from my partner that MM would be ok) I let him go, he ran straight to his mum and brothers and sisters and joined the flock as if he had never been away, his mum is looking after him and he snuggles alot with the other ducklings, he is tiny isnt he, which is why he needed the care i gave him, the ducklings he is with in the pics are from the same nest his brothers and sisters, he is soo runty but soo cute. I will miss having cuddles with him but am overjoyed he is happily with his family.Ming Ming is the tiny yellow duckling, the other ducklings in the pics are MM's brothers and sisters they were all born 3 weeks before xmas just wanted to show how small he is compared to the others.

    Ming Ming is so tiny!! Im betting the company is appreciated now back with His/ her own kind- but it sure looks like you did a good thing taking Ming Ming for a while to give him/ her a better chance of surviving.

    I returned MM to its mother once but the second time he was left i just couldnt, he cried alot for his family every time he heard them outside so when i felt he was ready i let him go, was very sad and scary but the other ducks accepted him without any pecking
