I rescued 2 Easter Ducklings last spring and with the help of my local feed store I was able to raise them to healthy and happy adults. I fenced a area in with costed wire 4 foot fencing. I left a opening that allowed them into the spring that led to the pond. Every morning I would go down and sleek to them and feed them. They had began mating but never any eggs. I had also provided a shelter that I built out of stones and moss with a solid roof as well as another shelter on a small island in the small pond. They never used either shelter Two days ago Inwent down to greet them and feed them and Inoly saw may male swimming in circles in the middle of the pond. He was quacking, and he was usually very quiet. I looked everywhere for my female Edwina. She was always VERY vocal. I could not find her. My mail swam up to me and went over by the shelter and kept quacking and trying to bite me. I looked inside and found Edwina. He head and neck were gone. A clean cut, no blood or feathers everywhere and her legs were as if something drug her in and removed her head and left her. Now I don't know what took her life and whatever it was must have jumped the fence. I immediately threw together a temporary coop for him at night. He is being very vocal and trying to bite and nip. He does not like it. Please advise me of what Inshould do?! Should I raise him alone, get him a female friend. I know someone that has several males and they would give me a couple. Or should Infone him a home? Please Advise me, I am so heartbroken for the loss of Edwina.
