Hi everyone, I am very new to ducks. I just rescued a young crippled Pekin duck. I have no idea what I'm doing but can learn quickly! He was in a terrible situation so I felt compelled to try to help him. Does anyone have experience with crippled ducks? I really don't even know the basics for duck care so would love some resources. Right now I have the duck in our laundry room in a kiddie pool with bedding in the bottom. I have a shallow container of water in there. I bought duck food and know to mix it with water. Tomorrow I will be buying some supplements that were recommended-niacin and brewers yeast.. I have offered very tiny sliced vegetables and fruits that I found on a duck website. Anything else ducks particularly like? I have so many questions regarding care-how often should I let duck splash in shallow warm tub water? Is there a way to test for salmonella or treat salmonella? How often do young ducks eat? Should he be alright to sleep through the night in the kiddie pool with bedding? What does everyone keep their ducks in? When he grows he probably won't be able to be a yard duck because he is crippled... how do duck diapers work? Where would he be happiest? He isn't able to bare weight on his legs at all, they just splay out right now. He can move them though. He isn't very mobile. Before I rescued him a woman took him to the vet and they were told he would probably die in a few months from infection? He is able to stand if I help support him, I've began researching duck wheelchairs (ha! Had no idea that was a thing) and I think those could help. I've read ducks aren't very happy unless they're in a flock so now I'm also concerned about his long term happiness. Lol. Can anyone help me? He's such a sweet duckling I at least want to do my best to give him a chance at a happy life. Thank you!!
