Alright. I’m down one duck, in all likelihood. All three ducks took off last Thursday in the evening, right before dark. Two are really good flyers and were soaring around the neighborhood way up high. The third, Louie, barely got over the neighbor’s house. I figured they’d all be back before dark, since it was going to go below 0. None of them returned. Not a big deal - they’d done this just last week for two nights. Huey and Dewey came back the next day (Friday). Louie did not, and that caused me to worry, as Louie was always the first back. Another night below zero (Fahrenheit, btw) and I figure Louie’s a goner. Huey and Dewey both keep leaving and returning, but no Louie. Now it’s Tuesday and still no Louie. The debate: should I have curtailed their freedom by clipping their wings? Should I do this to the remaining two ducks? I know Louie is most likely a goner because she was alone. The other two stick together. They are mallards. Should I continue to let them fly free?
