He had food and water, it's a very shallow small amount and he shouldn't get stuck in it. He also has a mirror and a blanket to snuggle in. If I'm gone too long I can call my mom and see if she can come check on them and let my dog out. One of the other ducklings hatched but had a lot of hardened membrane stuck to it. My husband did his best to moisten it and got most of it off right before we left, but the duck is very weak. We'll see what happens. It's a bad time to have to leave but my husband takes priority. Thank you for all your help and suggestions.
