We have six 2 week old ducklings (was 8). All last night, I barely heard any peeping out of the 7 (which is extremely rare for these little buggers). Woke up this morning and stuck my hand in and none of them even tried to get up (they usually run from me immediately). Plus, their food was still as full as the night before and they barely even a third of their water (it's usually empty by morning). All they've done today is stayed cuddled up in the corner. Then, a bit ago, I found one on it's stomach with it's head laid down, sideways, dead. Two others had their heads down, couldn't move their legs or hold their head up. We had to stroke their front 'plumage' and backs for a bit because it was the only thing helping them. After about 5 minutes, they were and running around like nothing happened, for about 5 more minutes. Then, they were having trouble standing and holding their heads up again. Right now, they can hold their heads up but, when they try to stand, it's as if one leg is working and the other isn't. They've been outside a couple times this week so they might of gotten a hold of something? I though maybe it's Botulism type C that's happening but not sure. Can that affect more than one at a time? And if it might be that, can anything be done to stop these ones from dying too?
