A guy called wanting to know if I would take 2 mallards he had bought(oh well- we are ALL ignorant of something!!)and I told him I wasn't sure he needed to worry about their boredom with just his bucket of water because I have always been led to believe store bought mallards flew off eventually(sounds horrid to me-WHY do they sell wild ducks??) DOES anyone actually KNOW what is best for the mallards bought at store???? IF he calls me back I don't think I can help him because of my lack of proper housing for MORE ducks(NEW ducks anyhoo-they'd have to be quaranteened)I know some on here state their thoughts on NOT releasing store bought mallards but I want to know the SCIENCE of it.Are they more likely to starve or ?????
