I would keep him in the incubator for 1-3 days with food or water then put him in a box with a heat lamp keel it 90-100 deg. Start there and notify me if anything goes wrong good luck.

hi and thanka for the response, in my frantic-ness i managed to pull it off and enjoyed almost 4 or more weeks now the wonderment that comes from being a friend of a duck(s) but now i have another delimia and it has me worried so if you do manage to see this please anytime or what every the hour i have to find out whats possibly wromg with the duck . panting, breathing that sounds like a scoffing teenager but it isnt all the time . sitting down more then before, stretches out leg usually one at a time behind, occasionally uses head and neck to get up from resting position. eats drinks and preens normally. i had failed to give the proper amounts of niacin for about 2.5-3 weeks and have since been supplimenting with nutrional yeast. oh lastly, does this horse neighing like peep that sounds like some sort of upper resp irration or infection. please heap thank you
