    Thank you, I'll try and find that. I'm waiting for the feed store to open at 10 so I can get vitamins of some kind. You can see the size difference of those front two is massive. They are at least 2/3 bigger than the little ones. And I feel at two weeks of age those big ones are probably growing the way they should. The little ones seem to be not growing at a normal rate IMG_2690.JPG

    I sure wish I knew what was causing the problem. Hopefully getting them on a poultry vitamin along with the other your using will help. They are beautiful ducklings.

    I put a packet of save-a-chick in their water and squirted a little in the mouth
    of the two I was worried about. In 20 min they started drinking, then eating on their own. Now they seem tons better. It's crazy. I feel so responsible. I'm keeping this in their water for the next month or so to be safe.
