This morning I decided to give Myduck another chance to meet her duck family but I really didn't think Ginger would accept her and I wasn't so sure Myduck would be interested in them either, afterall, she loves me, right?
I set her down on the ground, Ginger honked and Myduck ran right to her and the other 2 babies. Ginger touched her with her bill a few times but didn't hurt her or anything. Myduck never looked my way again, not even when I called her name. It's been more than 12 hours now and they all seem to have adopted each other quite nicely. Of course I checked on her all day. I was concerned Ginger wouldn't keep her warm at night but at dusk all 3 babies were huddled near her so I think it will be ok.
I'm happy it all worked out but it made me just a little sad. I guess she wasn't really My Duck.
