Ok, this is not a chick question but a duckling question. I brought a sick duckling home from the feed store today bc well, that's how I am. It looks like it could be duck hepatitis after reading on the internet (matches symptoms exactly.) My kids and I have been handling it and I'm now a little terrified. Is this something that can be transferred to people or animals? I know it prob can my chickens but they are outside away from it all. Also, has anyone had a duck arch it's back and fall over with its legs stiff and straight out and it not be hepatitis? It is constantly drinking water and I mean every 5 seconds and eating good. It looks a bit spraddle leg so I taped it's legs up. It's not on it's back anymore bc of the small space it's in and actually seems to be more alert and doing a bit better. I have had him for about 7 hours now. Any advice would be great bc i don't know a thing about ducks!
