This can't be good. I have a pair of Pekin ducklings that are a week and a half old. I did have 4, but two of the died this past Friday (8 days old). One had died between checking on them before putting a DVD in and finishing the movie (The movie wasn't THAT bad! It was GalaxyQuest). The second died an hour later, it was panting and was very hot to the touch. I fear I accidentally cooked them. We had been told to keep them at 99 degrees for their first week and lower it by 5 degrees every week after. So we changed out the bulb from a 250 Watt to a 100 Watt (we were sold the 250 Watt by the same guy we bought the ducklings from in Albuquerque), they two remaining seemed to be doing fine. We also started wetting their feed because a coworker of mine (who had raised ducks when he was a kid) said the feed will expand in their little tummies and that will kill them too. Now I have two left; Westley and Buttercup and one of them is panting just like the one that had died in my hand last week! They both don't appear to be eating as much but they are going through their water just fine. I replace it twice a day with cold, clean, filtered water (because supposedly there's lots of Chlorine in our water. Who knew?). Please tell me what in the world I'm doing wrong! I don't want these two to die. I don't think I can take it if they die! Edited to Add: I just checked their temperatures and they're running about 88 degrees so I turned off their heating lamp. What temperature should they be??
