    so there were ducks in my pool and as there growing up and being able to fly, the mom takes them away from the pool so they can live their lives. So there were 2, until one was ready to fly. So the mom did what she usually does but...the last one is still here and it’s been 2 hours and she’s still gone. The ducky hasn’t fallen asleep yet and she’s just in the pool waiting for her mom to come back. My question is....is she gonna come back??

    Is this normal for ducks to do?

    That is not normal! Is it a wild duck? If so, call your local wildlife rehab for advice, poor baby. Usually mom always stays with the babies.

    it is wild, the mom had been going back and forth checking on the baby, but once the baby finally left, the mom never came back to even check if she was there
