    Keep him warm until he can be seen by a vet.
    Try to get some Baytril in suspension form from the vet. Seems to be a very good wide-spectrum antibiotic that is duck friendly.
    I would suggest putting some Terramyacin in his water, but if he isn't drinking, there is no way to know if he is even getting any of the medicine.
    Good luck with him, hope he gets to the vet soon and gets better!
