Lulz.  I consider motto be adventurous with food, but that is one item on my "no" list.

ducks mostly take care if themselves really.

a mother duck will accept any other ducklings to the flotilla, it just increases the odds that her's will survive.
if you have 5 ducks, and  predators will eat a minimum of 4 ducks but potentially more.
Then adding more dusk from anyone else to your pool of ducks increase the odds that the ducks with your genes make it.

And the coocoo duck hatches and leaves the nest immediately to spend it's whole life on it's own with no parent ever.


ducklings are self sufficient, just highly vulnerable to predators, and due to their small size, they have more predators too. A large catfish or bass can swallow a duckling but not a grown duck.
