    Bill was the only duckling to survive a hatch of 14. His name is Bill and he is all alone. He has a new friend coming on Friday evening to stay with him, but do you guys have any tips on making him happy in the meantime? that sad and lonely peeping sound is making my heart hurt!

    Put a mirror in with him so that he can see and talk to himself. This should work until you can get a companion.

    Ahhh, he is a sweet little thing. I agree with the mirror, also give him as much lap time as you can until his new buddy arrives.
