    I rescued 2 Easter ducklings! Last spring and that have been happy and I recently lost one [​IMG] My female Edwina. My male Buddy is still with me.
    I have built a temp coop for him bud need advice. He seems so lonely and he is trying to bite me. What should I do!

    I don't know much about ducks but, if you post on the "Duck thread," they should be able to offer the best advice. Just put duck thread in the search box and it will come up.

    I would guess that your boy would be happier with some duck company...is it possible to get a couple more ducks?

    G’Day from down under cowetatina [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some good tips I will just add that I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
