The ranch I work at has a fair amount of ducks. We also have a good number of things that like to eat baby ducklings. That being said, we found one of the ducks nesting in a tree near our parking lot. My coworkers have been planning to catch the babies and the mom to protect them from the many things that can eat them. I personally feel that wild ducks are wild ducks and to leave the circle of life alone, but my ranch hand just walked into the office with 3 baby ducklings and a mom duck in a giant dog carrier. Now what? Should we keep the mom confined with the babies? My coworkers aren't about to let them go, so what do you guys suggest? We have chick starter food and chicken food for the mom, but this is uncharted territory for me. We usually just find one or two abandoned ducklings.
