I am new here and this is my first post and I could use some help!
I work for a dog/cat supply shop and had a guy come in at the end of the night who had found a baby duckling . The duckling was found with a straycat who was pawing at it. He didn't see mom or other babies or a water source anywhere, so I can only guess the cat snagged him and carried him away.
He appears to be very young still.
I had baby ducks when I was very
Young, but don't remember much of their care.
Of course by the time I left work all the feed stores In town had already closed and none of the other pet stores had any sort of baby food.
I could really use any and all advice! For now I have a large plastic tub with a clean towel, a heat lamps, and ive been offering water, But can't get him to drink any. He just wants to sleep
Overall he seems healthy. I dont see any wounds and when he's awake he is alert and active.
Thank you all In advance!
Ps...can anyone tell me whAt kind of duck he is?
