Our Muscovy hen hatched out her ducklings sometime between yesterday and this morning. I went to check on her this morning to find an empty nest with one egg that didn't hatch and what I thought was a dead duckling, when I picked it up however it gave a feeble peep. Still alive! It's not dry yet, and seems week, I have been carrying him around with me, but its warmer outside then in the air conditioned house so he is at the moment in a tub outside so temp is around 96 degrees - humidity is 53%. I mixed up some sugar water and got it to take a few drinks, though its slow on swallowing. I have been going out and checking on it and giving more drinks of water ever 15 minutes or so. Any other ideas? I have meat bird feed, but figure I should work on getting him dry before trying to feed, he won't drink the water on his own, only if I dip his bill in it. All the other ducklings (ten if I counted right) are doing great, but I want this one to make it if there is anything I can do for him. Why would she just leave it in the nest? None had hatched yesterday morning, so its not like she HAD to take the others out for water/feed. I put her and the other in a pen as she lost her last clutch taking them over the hill to the icky, dirty, gross creek. Thanks for any help!
