    My female runner duck hatched two ducklings last Saturday. One died yesterday, can I buy a week old Mallard duckling to replace it? Will she accept it? Thanks. [​IMG]

    She probably wont accept it since she already knows what ducklings are hers and she would probably kill it thinking it is a danger to her duckling.
