I rescued baby Mallards from a busy parking lot back in April. They are nearly grown now and we only lost 2 after bringing them home surprisingly and we have 6 left. Last week I had a lady come by to check out the farm to see if we are a good canidate to take in some feral barn cats that she has rescued. While walking around she saw my ducks and I told her the story about how I aquired them. While I am sure she had their best interest at heart, she made me feel really, really guilty about having them. She said that I should take them to a wildlife sanctuary where they can have a better life. :\ Now I know they don't have as good of a life as they could have if they continued being wild but I did save their lives, built them a nice, cozy coop, built them a safe nicely sized run and they always have a filled kiddie pool for swimming and fresh water to drink and food to eat. Am I being selfish? I thought I was helping them out but she made me feel like I am doing something wrong. She also mentioned that they don't have grass in their run...which is true but it's because they are busy digging holes with their beaks all day and destroyed the grass!
