    So. Today I brought my 3 ducklings out side for the first time. they were only out for 5 minutes. When I brought them back in I noticed that the smallest of the 3 stopped walking and was acting strange. I gave them a warm bath. The duck still won't walk but seems to be healthy.

    Any idea what I can do to help it?
