So on the weekend I got a call from our local gas station that there were 7 baby ducks running around without a mother. They know that we have ducks and chicken so called wanting us to come and get them. I told them to wait until suppertime to see if a mother showed up. Well suppertime came and no mother has shown up, they little ducklings were running around by the road frantic. So we go and get them. There were 7, I'm asuming mallard ducklings from the look of them. I have never had Mallards so I could be wrong. The are so tiny. Five of them didnt make the night, but two are still going strong. I have been feeding them duck crumbles and they arnt to sure about eating them. I have not seen them eat or drink as they are very skittish, but there is a good amount of droppings in the pen so they must be eating and drinking when we are not watching. I'm just wondering if there is anything special that we should be doing for them since they were born in the wild. You can see in the picture the size of them, they are sitting on a 2X4. Also if someone could confirm if they are Mallards or not that would be great. Anyways heres a picture!
