Hurt Duckling!


May 9, 2020
Hi everyone,
I have a sad post today but I also need lots of help! Today I moved into my parents house in Rhode Island from New York. I was setting up my ducklings brooder when their heat lamp fell into the brooder and hit one of my snowy call ducklings. At first, she could barely stand and seemed very rattled up. I thought she may have hurt her foot because it seemed like she was having a hard time balancing. Now, I think she got bonked in the head because she seems to be walking a little better. I gave her some electrolyte water and a drop or two of vitamin b complex mixed with water. She will not eat any food or drink on her own and her poop is a pure white color. I am very worried, is she going to be okay? What else can I do for her? She is now sleeping with her siblings (they do not seem to be pushing her/stepping on her or making it worse). I tried to feed her crumbles in warm water but she would not eat it and she would not eat yogurt either. I am so worried about my little ginger ))): Any and all help is appreciated.

I think you should just remain calm and let the little one rest a bit. You seem to be doing a great job with everything so just give her a little time and let's see how she is in the morning.
