So this is a crazy story! I have a girlfriend who is a marine biologist and she takes DNA sample from sharks all day long at sea. So today she shows up at my door with a 2 day old baby mallard that had apparently been caught in the current and swept offshore. I got him to eat and drink and poop! So it looks like he/she is good. He wasn't too happy under the light in the box so I thought maybe my female pekin might take to him. She is days away from hatching her eggs and she is a very broody gal. I havenever see a pekin sit like her! So I pushed her off of her nest and put the baby in her nest. She instantly preened him and sat right by him nuzzling him. It has been 2 hrs now and I went to check on them and I din't see the baby. I called out to the lil guy and his head popped out from underneath her and then she instantly pushed him back under. Will this work? Would she try to kill him right away or later? Should I take him out? HELP! After being 2 miles offshore and getting picked up by shark wranglers I really want him to make it!
