Hey guys. We had a hen hatch out a duckling sometime this morning. I did not see it around 7 when i let everyone out but my husband found it struggling around lunch time. Its head and beak were caked with dirt and when he tried to give it back to the hen she bolted away from it. Duckling was fluffy as well when he found it. So not a fresh hatch. He brought him inside and wiped down his beak and head to clear up his nostrils. However. He is still looking clogged in the nostrils and exhausted. Anything i can do to help him? I have dipped his beak in water to help him clean out some more dirt in his bill and wiped his eyes clear of dirt. He is at least holding his head upright now and is under the heat lamp inside.
