Very young with no mother
First of all, Mallard ducks are social creatures, so its best to raise a group of them. Also, if acquired without their mother, you should raise the duckling in an indoor cage, or a coop. When feeding, in addition to game-bird starter feed, Mallard ducklings prefer to feed on a diet of leafy greens, included among which are common garden weeds. For more advice, please follow the accompanying link.
I hope this helped!
I’ve never raised a mallard duck, or any duck for that matter, but if you’re planning on raising one it’s incredibly important to do good research and make sure that you’re getting professional information. A couple books that you may want to look up include Storey’s Guide to Raising Ducks by Dave Holderread. Here is a link to the ebook: http://books.google.com/books?id=DDBV8PeRJLMC&printsec=frontcover&dq=books+about+raising+mallard+ducks&source=bl&ots=7g5rgg1-gO&sig=mWCmi5V-zqobei6rWNQFG5C9CC4&hl=en&ei=lFjvS5nMO4mMswP_ytXiDw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CBoQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=books%20about%20raising%20mallard%20ducks&f=false
