hi. I have found a lone day old mallard duckling, it was rescued from my cat in the early hours of the morning. It was unhurt and is now approximately 4days old now and is so far thriving. I just need good sound advice on what to to for it’s best needs. When and how to release it.
Thank you in advance
Have a look here Karen, hope this helps, looks like you may have your hands full for a while! poultrykeeper.com/.../
You could also try locating a wildlife centre near you, if you want help or you don't want to rear the duckling yourself. Here is a link.
