Please help! My Runner duckling, aroun 6 weeks old took a pretty good bite off of a bar of soap!

Story:
I filled the bathtub with a little bit of water, where they wouldn't drown if I walked away. I walked away and came back a few minutes later. Daffy, the Runner, took a bit of a bar of soap that was in the side of the tub. (I didn't pay it much attention when I left) He's been acting a little strange sense then, but it might be my head getting to me.

Is Daffy going to be okay!? Here's the amount he had.

Your duckling should be okay. Since your duckling is 6 weeks old I wouldn't worry too much, if it was a few days old that could be really problematic.
Perhaps you could encourage it to drink plenty of water, and eat normal duck mash. Also (as you already now know) keep the soap out of reach if your peeps are inside the house.

Thank you so much and… Yeah, I learned my lesson! :lol:
