    My new kids... just got them yesterday .... I think they are about a week old and I have allowed them a short swim and we have been working on handling and getting used to me.... they are currently hanging in the guest bedroom with the heat lamps. I have two rubbermaid bins set up one for 10 chicklets and the other for the two ducklings. I know they are teeny babies so I havent been handling a great deal about a half hour a day as I know they need their rest but here are the kids... I sat on the floor and let them walk around a bit and they climbed into my lap... I love their little faces... boy in front, girl in back ... names to be decided

    today, i found one of my 6 week old Pekins on her back. I picked her up, watched her, she drank and waddled around with the others and seemed fine. 2 hours later, I found her on her back again. This time, when i picked her up, she was a bit wobbly on her feet, but walked away from me. When she attempted to flap her wings, she tipped over, wings spread, and just lay there. I picked her back up and she was just limp, head hanging, no movement other than breathing.

    I have separated her with water only. I have no idea what is happening! She was perfectly fine up until today. :(

    Anyone else here experience this??

    Her are my ducks at 5 weeks old. They are definitely a male and female. PB (pink beak) is a female and OB (orange beak) is a male.

    Unfortunately I've been extremely busy the past few weeks so they've become much more skiddish from lack of attention. I'm trying to work in bonding time everyday now. We are building their coop and run this weekend/next week so we'll hopefully have them outside by next weekend!
