You have received some great advice above :caf

 

 

 

 

 

First you need to separate the sick mallard from the rest of your ducks ...

 


A set up like this can help you put liquid into your duck ......

Ducks sometimes  have a deficiency of  niacin but, I would think if all your ducks eat the same, he should be fine.    The duck thread folks should be able to help you out.  Hope he will be okay.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
