    Seeking support! One of our sweet 4 week old ducklings is continuously falling onto her back and gets stuck. It's so sad. What do I do!? Thank you!

    I forget exactly what it is called, but it's a syndrome. Google "duck falling on back syndrome"- you should find something.
    The best thing you can do with what little you know is provide fresh water, food, and make sure she's getting some at least three times a day. Help her over if she can't make it. Also make sure the other's don't pick on her.
