I'm Fostering a Baby Duckling, Billie!

Here are a few things you should know about ducklings! Just like kittens and puppies, ducklings need an external heat source to stay warm--Billie uses a heat lamp and a heat pad. Ducklings are social animals who really need friends (don't worry, I am actively looking for another rescue duckling to join Billie!) While ducklings are very cute, you should know that they grow quickly and require outdoor space, a protective coop, a swimming area, and most importantly lifelong care. Ducks can live for up to 12 years or more, so never bring home ducklings if you are not prepared for a long term commitment, and please--consider rescuing, not purchasing! Finally, remember to choose compassion by leaving ducks off of your dinner plate. Watch my video about extending compassion to all animals: usworlds.info/slow/video/f3eobZ--j5d3dmY

  • Ducklings can swim from the moment they have hatched and dried, and seeing how he was found with wild ducklings he was very likely one of them. Not sure why you think he isn't wild,, unless it's his colouring? White ducklings can be born to wild coloured parents on occasion, genetics are a funny thing. Kinda a shame he was seperated from his wild siblings tbh. A lone duckling isn't a happy duckling. He'd much rather be with his siblings, chatting together, swimming and catching bugs (the grass is pointless)

    • Wescela Dennis I’ve cared for ducks before! Ducks eat a lot of things. If you don’t have access to commercial duck food, which you should probably order, you can go outside and get them things like small slugs and/or greens, like dandelions. Commercial duck food is the best though. You can also give them fruits and veggies! Cutting up some veggies like green beans and grapes are things that ducklings love!

  • I use to have 6 ducklings but a lot of them got eaten by rats, when there was 4 ducklings left I decided to train them (what I mean is making them run 1 lap every day). And 6 days later I came home from school and saw that the rats was chasing them but but got tired xD after that I knew it was a good idea to train them.

  • You will be able to tell the ducks' gender at around 4-6 weeks of age. If the duck starts quacking at all, you know it is a female. Males do not quack like females do, they just sound as if they have bronchitis. Source: I own ducks😊

  • That baby will be a white duck, like Donald. As to gender, once the feathers grow in, in a male a few top tail feathers will curl upwards toward the body. In a female, there's just a little curl on the end of the tail.

  • fun fact; The back tail feathers often tell you their gender, if they are pointed in a curved like position they are often a boy. If they are a tiny curve but not dramatic, probably a girl. :)

  • My family has ducks and something you should know is ducks are MESSY every time our ducks ate the would put the food in dirty mud water and then they would eat it so always make sure there is a little bit a water it definitely doesn’t have to be dirty but at least something , and we also mad a small little pool for them so they could have a little dunk with their mama

  • You can feed Billie lettuce and bean sprouts. They also love watermelon. Make sure you cut them up into small pieces so Billie won’t choke. Also, when they’re older, you can get them some crickets and mealworms. Also, never feed them green tomatoes, eggplant, dried or raw beans, iceberg lettuce, and avocado. All of these are toxic for ducklings, and iceberg lettuce gives them diarrhea. You also should get four more ducklings, but beware, as they are REALLY, REALLY, STINKY!

  • We raised alot of ducklings... I hope you can get some small smooth gravel/sand to help them digest food... yes, like chickens they need the stones to grind their food up in the gut...and they need water so it helps go down easier... Also before introducing them to swimming water, they need some oils gently added to their fluff or they will be thrilled, then get cold and then sink... trust me... mouth to beak resuscitation on over 100 ducklings is hard... but we did not loose a single one. As for the colourings... Mammas can be...um.... friendly with lots of boys and mixed families are completely possible Hugs from Halifax

  • I have nine ducks and two geese, and they learned to swim right away. Ducks have a natural instinct to swim. About 32 to 48 hours after the ducklings hatch, the mama takes them out and most of the time The mama takes them to a pond and swims with them. He will be fine in water, as long as there is supervision around.

  • When it gets older,you will know if it is a Bill or a Wilma just by the color and its head markings. Birds that are males have brighter colors and more markings on their heads while females are duller and don’t have those markings on their heads.
