    Aww, poor sweetie...what I would do is carefully hold her in your hand and gently wash her in a sink with warm water. Cup her in your palm and use the other to pour the water on her back to help clean her up a bit. Then dry her off as much as you can.

    I use the blowdryer with Wobbles and she tolerates it just fine, but with such a small duck do you think she'll be okay with the noise and not get scared? Also I'm so sorry that your baby is sick...please keep us updated and I hope she gets better!
