    I hope you left the duckling with it's mama, all you need to do is make sure it cannot fall out of nest and not be able to get back in, place starter feed close by with the next 24 hrs. unless it's already 24 hrs old then go ahead and put out starter, and water very important it have water along with feed. Mama will show it were feed and water is, it can use chick style waterer for a few days then you'll want to give it it's own small bowl so it can clean out it's nares and eyes. Congrats on baby any more hatching?
    excellent waterer for ducklings. [​IMG]
