Ok, so I have this single wood duckling that i hatched out. We cut down a tree and without knowing, there were about 12 eggs in it. Only one egg wasn't broken and that's the one that i saved. Now, he is doing great, he's eating, pooping, swimming, doing everything good. The only thing is that he is lonely. I would like to hang out with him outside and hope the mother will hear him. She wasn't there when he hatched so would she still know his peep or not?? She has been coming around apparently. If you guys don't think that will work, would it make sense to adopt a mallard duckling that is one day older from a local? Just so it can have a companion? Would the mallard and my wood duck make a good pair? Thanks in advance!
