We have a Mallard sitting on 6 eggs in our back border. We don't have a big garden and we are about 600 yards from Furzton Lake.
The eggs were laid on or about 14/15th May so should hatch in 28 days time. She is a single mother so we are feeding her corn and giving her drinking water daily. I need some advice as to what to do when the ducklings hatch - they will need to get down to the lake either by themselves or with a little bit of help from humans. Is this a job for the RSPCA - any advice is welcome.
