    So for the last week these 2 ducks (I think mallard) females have been at my house, they almost look cross breed though. I have feed them some scratch because it seems they have been around people and they never fly off??? Should I try to catch them or let them alone???

    I would not be surprised if they were wild, the ones at a lake nearby are freeloaders when it comes to free food. I would just enjoy them and feed them if you like.

    They seem so small I guess that was what concerned me and I can walk up to them and they dont fly away
