Hi!
I received 5 ducklings in the mail friday that were 4 days old. I had a poultry feeder in there and thought about putting rocks in it like I do when I have chicks, but thought, no ducks can swim. Well about 20 minutes later I go to check on them and one was laying turned up dead on top of the water feeder. Otherwise it had seemed happy and healthy. i had just recently gotten them home. So that makes me think it did drown, but I can't find any exact information for ducklings that little.
Thanks!

It's so sad when something like that happens and most of us have lost a chick or duckling to something that could have been avoided. But we can't beat ourselves up about it on an on we learn and keep the rest safe from it happening again. It isn't something you did intentionally so take heart in that. :hugs Love on the ones still with you :love
