Im new to the Duck Mom life, and its all thanks to the little guy that I have as my profile picture. Im asking for any tips on raising an imprinted duckling. He is a male, I recently sexed him, let him rest and tried again and his little "you know what" came out. I have him in a brooder box right now and I let him out to walk around or stay in my bed for snuggles ontop of wee wee pads and towels. I am in this for the long haul and Im enjoying this new experience. Even if I get barely any sleep, my sister is with her 1 month old and Im with this little 4 day old duckling. We hang out with the babies together and my family is in love with this little chirping fuzz ball.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. In the long-term, he'll be a lot happier living with other ducks. If you can manage to get hold of another two or three, he'll grow up a contented duck.

    Any questions are best asked on this forum -
