Are there any other ducklings? It should be up and moving around soon. Do you have food and water close by so when it's ready it can drink and eat?

You could try giving a little vitamin electrolyte water just tiny drops right into the bill.
But at 14hrs old it may not be interested yet. They live off the yolk sac for a couple days once hatched.
