This morning I found my 5 month old drake in the mouth of one of our dogs.....dead, of course. He leaves behind his mate, Sundance. Everything I've read indicates ducks don't fare well alone. Should I try and find another 5 month old male to introduce to her? I'm in Asheville, NC, and would love any feedback, please. I'm devastated at this loss and do not want her to die of a broken heart. ANY SUGGESTIONS would be greatly appreciated.
