    I've recently adopted 2 ducklings, and they are about 2 weeks old now. One is always jumping around, happy and healthy. But the other has always been timid and didn't really like to be touched. But recently, I've noticed the timid duck has been pooping clear and almost gel like. It also is lacking a lot of energy and lets me touch it, which to me isn't normal. Is there something wrong? And if so, how can I fix it?

    Ducks drink a lot of water so their poop is always watery. Best you can do is try to keep a clean dry brooder with fresh feed and clean water, as well as providing correct heat for their age. Beyond that there's not much else you can do. Either it will be okay or it won't. If you are concerned than you will need to find a vet who will look at it.
