HELP- Pekin duckling


May 10, 2015
I have 2 Pekin ducklings that are a less than a week old. One is growing rapidly and is very playful. The other is about 1/2 the size and is always tired, moving only when it has to. It also lacks appetite, but will eat occasionally when spoon fed. We are feeding Nutrena unmedicated food and put brewers yeast in the water. It also will not chirp for its sibling. Any advice would be appreciated.

A good duck vet would be best.

Look for any signs of infection (listen to breathing, smell the breath, rank poop, very runny, very dark (blood) poop).

I would add a regular poultry vitamin with probiotics to their water twice a week for a couple of weeks.
