That's a baby for you, ducks don't like to be alone, try a stuffed animal or a mirror or both. This should calm him down. Make sure the heating pad is on low. He'll follow you all around. Usually by three weeks they get there big boy feathers but only on there bellies.

Each week lower the temp by five degrees once it reaches the same temp outside or he has all his big boy feathers then he can go outside.
But in one and half weeks they do start to smell. Lol
