domestic mallard question
Posted in the Duck Forum
#1 Aug 7, 2012
We have a female mallard duck that we raised from a baby. She is now grown and very attached to the collie that raised her..but she thinks she's a dog so we would like to get her a mate.
Is it possible for us to get a duckling and have her raise it and then allow him to be her mate?
Or would we have to raise him separately and then introduce him as an adult?
Is it guaranteed that they will even fom a bond?
We want her to be able to interact with another duck. She never leaves the yard though she could anytime she wants and she even makes cute nests and lays eggs, though she's never even seen another duck. She and the dog are inseparable.
If we get a duck will she bond with him the same way she has with the dog? Or will she forever believe that the dog is her mate?
Thanks in advance
