One of my duckling hatched last night and was moved to the brooder a few hours ago. I only moved him because he was all over the place in our incubator and he looked uncomfortable. He was completely dry before I moved him. The temp in the brooder is at 98, but he has not attempted to eat or drink anything. He lays down and appears to be falling asleep. Is he dying or just exhausted?

He is probably exhausted. You might want to teach him how to drink by dipping his beak in the water. They all should figure out how to eat when they al get in. They'll learn together.
