Ok, the problems continue. Since he was removed from shell. Loose in bator. He just curls up with head back under wing. ( See pic 1)I tried putting a collar on him to keep neck straight. ( pic 2). He just fights that on his back (pic 3). So wrapped him in paper towel and put him in cup (pic 4). I'm out of ideas. Maybe just time to retrain muscles or brain problems?
This duckling is crested which can mean some will have neurological problems I'd get him some B complex vitamins in dropper form so you can give right in the mouth a couple drops 2X a day. It can be treated but has to be done as fast as possible,Or get Poly vi sol with out iron and use same amount.
