Hi and welcome to BYC.

 

I'd suggest that you re-post this thread on both the "Emergencies, disease, injuries and cures" and the "Duck" forums for feedback for responses on the issue - I'm sorry, i have no experience with which to help you out.

 

Good luck

I agree with CTken   - also I think it is too young to let them be in the sink - the could get chilled if not dried off.  Ducks are only waterproof because of constant preening of the oil gland so they can spread it over their feathers.  A baby duck doesn't know that yet.  The water could adversely affect the bleeding cord as well, since ducklings are probably pooing in the water.

x2, but I'd like to mention - ducks don't have umbilicals cords, those are exclusive to mammals...:old
