Our duckling keeps throwing up. Last night it was clear. So we took its water away. Then today we gave him his food and water back and he started throwing up again. What should we do and is our duckling going to die?

Hi there, Welcome to BackYard Chickens!

Sorry to hear your duckling is having problems, A video would be really helpful, if you could upload it to youtube or Vimeo and copy/paste the link here, that'd be great. A few questions, what are you feeding, whats your setup like, is the duckling showing any other problems, is she pooping?

He is pooping, but the food set up is there is a container of water (that is too small to jump into) and some unmedicated chick feed that we add brewers yeast to. We mash up the feed and add water. I put a picture of the type of feed:

Ok so here is the video, you don’t get to see when he actually throws up, but this is what he does before he does, the throw up tends to be clear and sometimes there is pieces of food in it. He’s currently still doing what he was in the video and he may throw up soon but I don’t know what to do.
