    hello, im new and I'm having an issue with a baby duckling. I got it eailer because sadly the mom was hit by a car along with one if her other babies. I'm not sure if it's a male or female nor its breed, but its still a baby. I'm only having one issue with it though... several minutes after I took it out of the water and dried 20170518_095616.jpg it, it started bobbing it's head side ways and it can't even stand correctly and I'm worried. Idk what to do :(. Any advice or suggestions? Please it would be very much appreciated

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! That's so nice of you to take the duckling in after it lost its mother. It sure is very sweet!
    I'm sure if you pop over to the duck section the keepers there will be able to help you ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/forums/ducks.42/

    Good luck and enjoy your time here on BYC :frow

    He may have taken on some water (aspiration) - hopefully folks on the duck thread can help you out.
