    Duckling doesnt want to eat but drinks a lot of water

    all of them died. The last one who died have foam in the mouth. I change their vitamin water every 3 hours to make sure it wont spoil so I think the cause of death is the bedding. This is the first time I have ducks eat bedding. My adult ducks don't eat the rice husk bedding.
