Mallard ducklings rescued. Any advice or information welcome!

An old fellow on a bicycle came to my house yesterday, with 5 ducklings rescued from the middle of a road.  There was no mother around.  Neighborhood kids had directed him to my door.   I've done some research on feeding, but I want very much to prepare them for eventual release.  Of course, I know I can't just dump them in some pond when they get big.  Has any of you had experience in wild duck rescue?  I have them inside now, and have a 10 x 10 foot dog pen for them when they no longer  need an external heat source.  All advice welcomed!

When they become adults if you put them in an area that has a lot of wild Mallard ducks in it they might learn to survive from them.

Oh your discussion is cross posted here too! Well I hope you consider also posting it in the Birds Group I told you about. The link is on the other discussion.
