    i forgot to water my 3 black swedish ducklings 1 day. so, today when i went to check on them, they were out of water and one was dead [​IMG] . i put water in there and they went crazy over the waterer. i decided to watch them, one started sneezing and shaking head and was closing it's eyes. it was breathing threw its mouth so i assumed there was water in his nose and lungs. i put my mouth on his nose holes and intensly did mouth to mouth cpr for 10 minutes until he could breath out his nose,chirp, and walk. he gave me such a scare!! [​IMG] has this happend to anyone else?
