We've recently got 4 Pekin ducklings. They are about 2 weeks old now. Three are doing well and thriving but I have one little guy or gal (we keep calling it at boy) that first I noticed at their nightly swim in the tub that he didn't want to swim with the others. He was basically just floating and trying to fall asleep. I clean their bedding out while they swim and my husband watches them. Normally, once they have nice clean bedding and clean water / food the first thing they do is go eat. Well, he didn't want to eat. He just went and laid down and went to sleep. The next day I found him with one of his feet lifted up and he would keep pecking at it. He didn't want to walk on it. I was pretty sure that he wasn't going to make it through the day. So, I cried and cried. After I had my crying fit I called all of my local vets and no one in my area handles ducks. The closest person is almost an hour and a half away. So, I did the next best thing, I went online. We've added the probiotics & electrolytes to his water and have moved him to his own bed - I started to noticed that it looked like the other ducks were picking on him. I have noticed that he is a lot smaller and his feet are not as big as the others. I wasn't sure if he was a "runt" of the group. After the probiotics & electrolytes he appears to be a little better. My husband has been giving him boiled eggs. Also, his feet have been peeling. Anyone experienced this or maybe have any suggestions? I REALLY don't want to lose this little guy. I know it's the fact of life but if he make it he will definitely be our little special one!
