First, I want to say thank you to this forum. Over the last two weeks since we found these ducks, Google keeps bringing me back here to get the answers to my questions. You've even already helped one with wry neck heal! Back story; we live right next to a creek full of mallards, widgeons, visiting wood ducks, Canadian geese, and coyotes looking for food. Every once in a while someone thinks it's a good idea to dump their pet ducks at the creek, and so my daughter and I catch them and find good homes for them. Two weeks ago someone dumped a pair of baby White Crested Ducks. They were all white downy feathers, with a bit of smooth adult type feathers on their chest and stomach. Over the last two weeks they have gotten a lot of mature feathers in, but still have down on their backs and necks. They are larger than the adult mallards. They both quack pretty well, one makes a slight whistle with his quack, but they still make little chick peeping sounds a lot. I'm wondering how old they might be? As for the guy with wry neck...he was malnourished and very small. He's been on a duck start food, vitamin E, and getting neck massages. He holds his head upright most of the time now and I'm hoping he makes a full recovery, though I have no idea how long he was like that before he started getting treated. Any advice anyone has to offer, or guesses at ages would be great! We will end up finding a home for these guys, but want to get them healthy first. P.S. They are very bonded with each other, getting out of each other's sight means an ear piercing quacking fest.
