    It wasn't on he was away from it but it had poop on it and and feathers and he was upside down going crazy when I found him and they have food and I just gave them water but he is not drinking or eating and can't stand up like the other and they are plenty warm in the house
     
  6. They both look COLD..:(.....Wet the feed to a soupy mix it's easier to eat for Ducklings..:)....

    Sorry that happened..:(

    Ok I got to fix the lamp and brooder
     

  10. Do you have a heating pad or hot water bottle!.....A plastic Pepsi bottle with hot water in a towel might work?
