In the Brooder
- Apr 19, 2014
I can't tell if my duckling, Frank, is too hot or if something is wrong. He has his mouth open and is breathing really fast.. Should I turn off the heat lamp? Or just move him away? Or do they not pant?
Should I just move him further away from the heat lamp or turn it off for a little? I'm not sure of his age so I don't know if it would be dangerous for him if I turned it off. He still fits in one of my hands.
They are very messy little creatures, especially when it comes to water:-DYeah, he gets fresh water every two hours cause he makes a huuuge mess and plays in the water by jumping from his food to his water over and over. Lol. But I'll check his nose just in case.
