Rest In Peace Kim (Something Stuck On Duck)

Yesterday, this duckling hatched with a little string connecting to what I think is a yolk sac. He's been trying to take it out but he is struggling. What do I do!

 

(RIP KIM)

Hi there and welcome-byc.gif
It looks like the ducks umbilical cord.
If you put the duckling under the brooder or heat lamp
The heat should dry it up and make it fall off.
Don't cut it as you may make the duckling bleed to death.
Goodluck,
Fionn.

Hi. Sorry for the late response. Unfortunately he passed away this afternoon. Thank you for the reply just in case this happens again.

Thank you for the support. I am feeling much better now as I still have 4 little healthy ducklings to take care of.
