i took home one week old duckling. he was crying and walking alone , looking for his mother. there were 2 moms with duckling around , but they were not interested in him, one of them even chase him out. so i took him and put him in a big plastic box with a towel in the bottom and stuff animal and water and cracked corn. he was crying a lot. an hour later i saw another mom with ducklings that look like in his age, and i do think it was the mother but unfortunately my husband just moved the kayak and the mother got scared and swam away with the ducklings. i have a question. if tomorrow i am going to see her, can i let him go to her? if the baby is hers would she except him after a night that he wasn't with her? now, if its not the mother then its mean that i am letting him be by him self again. i really dont know what to do. can i give him anything else beside the corn? maybe some veggies and grains chop? i really prefer not to raise him, as it looks that he is very distress.
