Hi everyone, I'm all new to being a duckling's momma. We live in Newman, Western Australia (which is in the northern middle part of WA). I live here with My hubby, 5yo daughter and two maltese fur babies. We found hin/her outside in the dark. Not sure where it came from and I haven't seen any Mallards in town. There's waterbirds at the dam, but that's about 10km outside of town. So we decided to raise the little one. We only got the one. So after a week that we've had the little one, my one maltese is slowly getting use to it. The other maltese was fine with the baby from the start. I didn't know anything about duck, what to feed, how to raise or anything, but thanks to this site, I've found a lot of info. I just wanted to introduce myself, and say thanks for accepting me. What a great and informative forum.
