    No, Hell no. Got human smell on them and won't take 'em back. You 'll kill 'em.

    no no no..... wild life rehabbers get real sick of "rescuing " animals that didnt need it because the mothers wont take them back... never touch a wild baby bird, or any animal if you are not knowledgeable of what you are doing.

    It is not good the mother may kill the duck. You should be careful

    No, I don't recommend it.  Most of the time, the mother will attack it if you try to put it back after too long.  However, I have had some success with returning or giving a duckling under 3 days old to a mother with ducklings the same age.  You have to be extremely careful and be prepared to re-rescue the duckling if the mother duck tries to kill it.   I wouldn't try this unless you know exactly what you're doing and know duck behavior extremely well.
