Hi Sarah

Is is a white quacker duck? It is always nice to have 2 especially if you do not interact with it alot. If he is house tame, and you spend time with it, then no I would not entirely call it cruel. You would probably see him having lots of fun with one of his own kind that can swim with him and groom him.
