Does this look normal? Help!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 



He's been like this for over 24 hours and it looks like it's bleeding. Please help- he is active and vocal I don't know what went wrong!


EDIT
okay that duck hatched but it really isn't acting normal- it barely eats and drinks, makes a weird gurgling sound, and has dried blood on its nostrils. Whenever it gets a little bit of water on its mouth it takes it a long time of swallowing, and I think I can see its heart beating in its neck- I don't really know what that is. I wish I could post a video of it but I don't know how P_P



I fed him a tiny bit sugar water but I don't know what else to do.. Can someone please help? Thanks?


Also is it normal for a duck to have feathered feet?


Sorry it's a lot of questions sad.png

Leg feathers is new to me, but I found this: http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/576413/why-does-my-duck-have-feathers-growing-out-of-his-feet/10

I should note that the first link say's they're  "serious defect" but I think that really applies to show ducks.
