    on saturday, i bought scoop, my baby duck.
    i know i should have bought two, but i want him to be more of a pet.

    well, he was completely healthy until today.
    when i got home from school, i got him & my chick out,
    & he was just sitting.
    which isnt normal.
    so i ran him some water in the sink, & he still didnt act normal.
    then he started rocking back & forth,
    & now he, too, seems to have curled toe paralysis.

    which, is what my chick has, but hes wearing cardboard shoes to correct it.

    is that contagious?
    or is there something else wrong with him?
