    I started a new thread hoping to get more responses. I just picked them up, they've been in shipping since Monday at 4p.m. 1 was DOA, 1 is VERY sick, and 2 seem OK.

    The healthier 2 are drinking and trying to eat. The 1 duck one is laying down, labored breathing, and will not move much. I have attempted to hydrate with little drops of water. She swallows some, but bubbles some out of her nose. I am afraid I am going to make things worse by force feeding her water. She feels VERY thin and her little feet are shriveled up, I'm assuming because she is so dehydrated.

    Note: I have Quick Chick in the water.

    Please, I need advice ASAP!
