Hiya, brand new to this and am looking for some help/opinions etc from you guys So 3 days ago i scooped up and rescued a Paradise duckling from the grim hands of my playful ponies in the paddock! There was no sign of any ducks/ducklings around the area and as i knew a storm was about to pass through i did what anyone would do and took the poor thing home! Little "Spike" as we call him, has attatched himself to me and follows me everywhere, he is eating/drinking/sleeping perfectly fine and is generally a very happy, healthy little duckling. Now, i am not sure of how old this little guy is, hes fat, bold and fearless and is starting to grow little feathers on his tail under his downy fluff, would anyone happen to know much about ageing ducklings and give me a rough age? as ive noticed he spends alot of time sitting/falling on the backs of his legs rather than standing (is this normal? or just a young duck thing?) Also id like some peace of mind in what i have been doing is ok for him? He sleeps in a warm soft blanketed box with a dish of started chick feed (which is what pet store insisted i fed) , chopped grass/weeds filted in water and i take him outside a few times a day to forage in the garden. He seems to be doing great and enjoying his new adopted life.... just wanting to make sure i am doing right by little Spike and if there is anything else you would recomend please let me know Soffie & Spike.
