Fourteen baby wood ducks jumped from their nest inside a wood duck box at the home of Dr. Michael and Aimee Benoit in Jennings. Their family opened the box to find that the mother and brood had left behind this little duckling, who didn’t make the jump. The couple’s 11 year-old son, Luke, decided to try to raise the duckling and help it through its first few stages of life.
