    Our baby ducks are 10 days old.
    They are now in the bath tub with a heater going for them. The room is 80-90 degrees.
    I noticed some red rashy areas on the wings and one has it on her neck and wings.
    They are eating well.
    I have them on meaty bird as well as boiled egg, greens, celery and broccoli and scrambled egg.
    They have fresh water in a paint tray in the tub at all times.

    I notice the redness more when they go into the water to clean themselves.
    There is only about an inch of water in it.

    Anyone that may be able to help me out I would be grateful.

    The pictures are really bad. They dont like the camera. Plus when dry you dont see it as well.

    Since I have never had ducks I have no clue. Do they start to feather at 10 days?
    TY for the reply
