So Lucky is growing into a big duckling! I am tempted to say Lucky is a she, but don't want to speak too soon! But here is the ?. 'She' is about 3 weeks old. I'd like to start her outside during the day within the next 2-3 weeks. By then I'll have a pen with shelter. The problem I'm having is how to help 'her' deal with it. She is always around us, or in the tub in the washroom. After we leave her, she peeps like crazy for 30 minutes sometimes. I know she will cry even more when left outside. Of course I'll make it a slow transition, and stay with her for long periods of time, I can handle the common sense stuff. What I'm hoping someone will help with is maybe something extra I can do. She will be a lone duck until next spring. Does anyone have experience with having just one duck for a while? Maybe I could find and borrow a duck? Would that even work???
