I had posted a month ago about abandon ducks, in the chicken forum,from a neighbor that moved and left many ducks they purchased and left. I helped gather them with the realtor, and suggested another neighbor that might take them. The neighbor who took them is old schooled and feeds her animals only donated food from food banks, etc. I kept looking for the ducks on her property and could only see her geese, and just a few ducts maybe three. I thought she must of butchered them. Well tonight I found this starving to death duck in my driveway. I scooped him up and brought home. Hubby not happy. Well anyway I assume it is a he with a few curled tail feathers, but is very weak, so skinny OMG, dirty, etc. I gave him flock food from my chicken food. He over ate and had a hard time swallowing, I thought I killed him from over eating. I tried to make him drink water, wouldn't touch it. I left him and it appeared he did drink some water. I also added yogurt. Anyway he is very weak, not moving much but did find him sitting up, he has a hurt leg also but can use it. I am waiting to get his strength back and will see if leg is broken etc. Any advise would be appreciated. Can ducks bring deceases to my chickens? I have the duck in a utility room, that I keep around 50 degree, in a large dog cage. It is shivering a little. Not sure if I should put a heat lamp on him.
