    Floppy, shaky duckling who keeps falling on his back!

    I just had 3 brooder ducklings acting drunk and flipping around onto their backs... I let the brooder go over the weekend (crazy ice storm issues) and it was duck poop soup come this afternoon. Doesn't take them long to create a toxic environment. I pulled them and tossed them in the bathtub...
