Hi everyone! you all are going to get tired of me posting b/c this whole duckling thing is so new...I am sure the chicken people felt the same way when I got my first chicks! Ok so I have two one week old call ducklings, they both came from black call parents but one is white and one is black. The little black call (Yin) seem to be healthy and doing fine and has grown quite a bit. The little white one (yang) is still kinda wobbly and has trouble with his balance from front to back and sometimes falls backwards (I already posted about this) The bigger Yin gets the more I have noticed that Yang is not growing as fast and his body seems small, when he gets wet his body looks to small for his head (like the ugly duckling) The other problem he is having is he seems to be always scratching, mostly trying to scratch his head (which causes him to fall over!) he also shakes his head a lot. I let them go for a swim everyday to get cleaned up and Yin plays and swims and clears his nose. While Yang spends the whole time scratching and preening..... he get water in his nose but doesn't blow it out like the other one (I see the adults do this all the time) So he sounds like he is weezing and just not clearing out his nose. Is there something going on with him that I am missing? They both had a hard time hatching and needed help, they both got stuck, but yang was a day behind Yin and was struggling longer in the egg and took longer to hatch. I have them on "chick saver" vitamins, is there something else I can give him to help boost him to grow? They are on flock raiser also...maybe switch to non-medicated chick starter? Thanks!!!
