Baby duck??

Recommended Posts



Just been to the shops and have found a baby duck hiding in the door to the CO-OP, I've spent the last 20 minutes trying to find it's mum to no avail. We have hundreds of ophan ducks in the village where I live and as everyone is quite rural they let them fend for themselves which I just couldn't do - survival of the fittest and all - she would stand a chance.


I had 2 baby ducks last year (they were suicidal in front of my car), and I grew them up to about 5 months old when they could fly before letting them go.


With this little wee girl - I think I'm better sending her to a rescue centre as I get my chickens on Saturday - and the duck run was dismantled last year after they had flown the nest - does anyone know a duck rescue in Suffolk/ cambs / norfolk - or known anyone with any pet mallards who'd like another one?
