    I just got 3 snowy mallards this morning & one doesn't seem to be doing well all of a sudden. She won't eat or drink & just lays there. Is there anything I can give her to perk her up or do you think she is going to die? The other boy & girl are eating & drinking. What can I do??

    put water and sugar in a squirt tube and hold the duck upside down and put a drip on the corner of the beak closest to its head and then stand the duckling upright and it should drink the water also if you have a liquid antibiotic such as tylan 200 do the same with that

    how the ducky does ok

  4. Just to make sure, they are on non-medicated food, right?

    They are on a duck diet - non-medicated food. She never did eat today.
