    Are you sure there's no mama duck? How old is the duckling?

    The best thing to do is probably contact a duck rescue center or a wildlife rehabber.

    They are very high strung you need to get it to a wildlife rehab right away

  5. I wish you were closer. I would take him off your hands.
    I have a momma duck.
    I would give him baby starter food. If you give them to much protein they will get a condition called angel wing, which will make it so they can't fly, or not very well.
    I will try and find the name of the man here in town.....all he does is raise all types of wood ducks. He help me with my duck.
  6. Found it. I know your there and we are way across the US, but if you want to keep him and no one offers advise, then you can call him.
    Just an option for you.

    just let him know that another person from Fresno recommended you to him for advise.
    My name(if he remembers it) is Keccia Milne
    Anyway I hope things work out either way.
    Good Luck.
