    There is something called the Migratory Bird Act that you need to know about - only people licensed to do so (if I understand correctly) can legally keep migratory birds, and I believe Mallards are in that category.

    So, you may need to find a waterfowl rehabber in your area...

    I guess I shouldn't have used the term "wild"? I should have said "domesticated". Thanks for giving me the info to research!
