I bought 2 Pekin ducklings last week Tuesday. I had them in with a momma hen and her 6 chicks. I noticed yesterday that one of the ducklings doesn't seem to be thriving as well as the other. It is about 1/2 the size, rarely eats unless spoon fed and still only eats occasionally. She will not chirp for her sibling if removed. She mostly just lays around, but will walk if needed. I removed them from the hen so they wouldn't have the negativity from the hen, who doesn't like us being around her chicks. This duckling does poop, but the poop is more runny and stinky. There is no blood in it. I'm not sure what to do!! Any help would be appreciated!
