    There is a duck that I think needs to come live with me instead of the small pond it lives on in town.
    It used to live on someone’s property but they dumped it off there. (It’s the only one there) It doesn’t fly at all.. I’m worried for it..beings winter is coming and it gets real cold here!

    I have 3 drakes at home, so I’m not sure how they’d get along! But I think it needs somewhere warm to live and to have food!

    What should I do???

    Well if it was dumped and can't fly chances are pretty low she'll survive. as too bringing it home, you would have to quarantine it for awhile, because who knows whatit could have living there. If it is a girl duck it would not be good for it to be around your drakes. The girl would be in very bad shape in little time.

    Are you able to keep her separate? Even if it is just long enough to find her a new home where the drake-to-duck ratio is more ideal?
