We brought him inside without much hope, as his neck was limp, but he was weakly paddling his feet. He lost one eye and I can't determine how bad the damage is to his neck internally, but he was making a rattling gurgling sound when breathing. There was blood coming out his nostrils. I expected him to die overnight.
He has survived 3 days on water mixed with egg yolk. He quacks when I disturb him and moves as far away as possible, poops bright green, and sleeps a lot. Not eating solid food. His breathing is sometimes loud but no longer rattly.
Should I be worried about the lack of solid food? Thoughts?
Ducks are amazing at recovering, but I don't want him to starve because of my ignorance.
