One of the pekins I have was sitting in the water shivering today. We took him out of it. It looked like he was missing feathers they were so wet. Idk he/she was able to preen itself. I noticed that it is having a hard time walkinf. Its like... stepping on its own feet. And the other ducks arent really going by it. Its sleeping in the duck house alone.
Its so sad. 😢 idk if I should bring it inside for a few days and nurse it, or let it be... its only about 8 wks old?
That duck needs help. If you can get to a vet, please do so.
Bring him or her inside, be sure to keep the duckling warm enough - I would say around 60F or so, since it has caught a chill. Put some poultry vitamins in the drinking water. The duckling may have hypothermia - that can be dangerous, and cause other problems. So boosting the immune system and avoiding any kind of stress (including cold water).
