    Does he preen himself? Have a pond or little pool to swim in? Have you checked him over for mites?

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. Definitely post on our duck link provided by Kelsie2290 and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. I hope your duckling will be okay. Good luck.
