Hi there all,

We have in our care 4 Pacific Black Ducklings which have been abandoned by
their mother in our swimming pool.

What is the best way of caring for them (eg cage, shelter etc)?

What is the best food for them?

Do South Australian members of B-Aus know of anyone who would be better
qualified to look after them?

When would be the best time to release them in the River (which is about 3
km away)?

Thankyou for any help,

Trevor Hampel
