    Hi I just wanted to ask If it is worth to keep trying with this duckling I have bandaged legs together put shoes on him and he is just constantly rolling to side I keep trying to support sides of him so he cant but he does. He is on the smaller size and yes he did come out to early as he was pipping and without me knowing my son had pulled shell off. I know this is terrible and I do feel bad and this will never happen again but I don't want to put this duckling through an ordeal when he probably wont make it. I tried to google this but couldn't find anything. I have washed dried yolk of him put aneseptic on him gave him vitamin water. Shall I put him out of misery??
