    HELP! My neighbor just found 2 ducklings (or goslings) walking into her garage. They don't have any feathers. Not knowing much, I told her to give them water, lettuce, cooked brown rice and a mushed up hard boiled egg. We put some litter in the box and I had her hook up a light. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. I'll try and get a picture as soon as I can and post it.

    Awwww, poor things! It think they're goslings, but I could be wrong -though they are quite young.

    If you give lettuce or greens, make sure they are finely chopped -if they are eating greens, cooked rice and egg they will need small grit sprinkled lightly over it. You could also give them chick starter if you have any -gamebird would be best, but the chick stuff will work.

    Keep them warm and dry and they should do well. But your best bet would be to find a duck rescue in your area -especially if they are wild! Try here: http://www.duckrescuenetwork.org/rescuers.html

    Good
    luck!
