shaking duckling

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i have a mallard duckling that hatched last night around 12 hours ago. It was hatched with the yolk not fully absorbed and it was also ruptured with a small amount of tissue outside of the umbilical area. i tied this off and left the duckling in the incubator and this morning the yolk sac and tissue had dried up and i removed it. Now the duckling wont stop shaking violently, it looks like its feet are vibrating! It also cannot walk properly and keeps fallinf onto its back hmm.png apart from that its very vocal and very lively, what could be wrong? is it in pain and will it get better? sad.png

Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

 

I'm sorry to hear about your duckling!:hugs I also am sorry to say I know nothing about ducks so I can't give any advice. I would ask in one of these two areas of BYC.

Hello,

 My name is Steven. I have been raising Chickens and other birds for about 2 years now. I will say it is really fun and addictive. I really enjoy incubating eggs and watching them grow into beautiful birds.

 

I am currently looking to buy or trade for some Ancona Chickens if you have some for sale please let me know.

I just answered on your other thread,  I wonder if he has low blood sugar (or it that even happens to poultry) because he didn't  fully absorb the egg sac which would have

provided him with nutrition.  I know  one of the  symptoms is   shaking/shivering, loss of motor control
