I have a few questions. This year I got two mallard ducks one day they were out during a thunder storm with my chickens. After the storm I went to go check on them and found out that my female duck had gotten scared and flew off. I looked for her for about a week but didn't find her, so I decided to get my little boy some friends so he wouldn't be lonely. I ordered some eggs from ebay and put them in the incubator about a month ago. There were 12 of them one survived and hatched today. The eggs were all developing but then some stopped then I went on vacation for a few days and had my dad turning them when I got home I found out he had been turning them but instead of doing it in a circle he was turning them upside down, two survived, the second one had died 3 days later. What I want to know is what should I do. The little duckling is all by herself and no one by my house is selling baby ducklings not even on craigslist, and I don't want to order 15 from a hatchery because I don't have room for that many. I would put her with my chicks but they are close to a month old and they are bigger than the duckling. Any thoughts on what I should do?
