Hi all! My partner and I have recently became duck parents and I have found this site very helpful for some questions we've had along the way. Our duckie child is Fergus, he came to us by chance when my boyfriend was driving to work and found the little guy on the corner at the lights scared out of his little feet, with no signs of other ducks or owners (we live in the city) we took him in and made up a brooder box in the living area. Fast forward 4 weeks and Fergus is getting so big! He's getting his feathers in and looking quite scruffy. We bath him in the tub every night and he has free range of the house during the day (due to his age we are wary of leaving him outside, the neighbours have cats and dogs and it's winter here) Fergus is very affectionate and sometimes cheeky, he loves playing and sitting with us of an evening. My question is when will Fergus be able to live outside and should we get him a friend? If so, when is the right time?and should we consider male or female? I'm not even sure what breed he is (or if he's a he!) but he's yellow so I'm thinking Pekin. My partner wants him to be an inside duck as we live in the city but I think he would be happier outside. We give him LOTS of love and attention and research as much as we can but we've never had a pet bird let alone a duck and would appreciate any advice on making sure we're the best duck parents we can be TIA!
