Well, while I look up a few links for you,
food and water, 24/7, no food without water
keep them warm and safe (over-enthusiastic kids, or dogs, or cats, or things that fall, or people feet . . . )
They are waterfowl, do not blame them for splashing and dribbling.
They neeeeeeeeed the company of other ducks, could you become inspired to go get a buddy? They can still be your darlings. I have eleven, and I get plenty of hugs and sweetness, they just don't get as anxious when I am not around because they have a flock.
Watch the bedding. Some little nut balls, like mine, eat shavings or sawdust pellets.
Ducklings need 3 times the niacin chicks do, so if you are feeding chick crumbles, get brewer´s yeast or niacin capsules (not no-flush, just regular, 100 mg to 150 mg per gallon for 10 weeks).
Okay, I plan to be right back.
Take a look at this
oh, and this
