    I have 3 Mallard Hybrids they are a month old. They were all doing great but now one of them is so lethargic. Sometimes she acts like she can't see, she was drinking but not this morning, I can lift her head and it's just limp. I have n a her in the house now in a playpen and she tries to stick her beak in the corner as far as she can. HELP PLEASE:([​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm not sure if a little sugar in her water would hurt her or give her energy and buy her time, but I'd go down to the Ducks topic heading below the main ones and try to talk with some experienced people about your duckling. I hope you can find something quickly to do to help him/her- Good luck, will be checking to see what you find ~ [​IMG]
