    My son raised this duck(her name is ducky). She is acting weird. She got in the pool playing whe it was hot and I had just put fresh water in it. I think the water may have been too cold. She is still eating and drinking but she drops her head and her body temperature is either cool or getiing cold. This is our first flock of ducks and I don't want to lose any. [​IMG]:fl

    Thank you:fro:frow To let you know I have kept her in the house and she seems to be doing better. She's eating applesauce and drinking water. She seems to be improving.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I sure hope she's OK. Just keep her in comfortable temps overnite and see how she is in the morning.

    She is still improving. No neck and head drooping! When I went to check on her this morning she was standing up waiting on me! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Prolly just got chilled. Ducks are generally very hardy. I have a few pesky muscovys that sleep under a picnic table all winter long with no ill effects..
