Duck with swollen tummy

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Mallard that hatched about 8 hours ago and it's breathing and peeping but it hasn't moved out of the spot it's in at all and it has a very swollen belly. What's wrong and is it going to be okay?

I am not a hatcher.

 

From what I read, this may be within the range of normal, though.

There is a thread where a bunch of hatchers check in - http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/978237/she-said-he-said-whos-right-whos-wrong-no-one/34660

I've always considered it normal. Others may have another idea though.
