    I have one baby that was born from a very small egg and is very weak. He can’t stand up, eat and has been getting trampled by the mandarin ducklings. We have him in his own container now and we have been trying to help him eat some food and drink water but does anyone have any ideas to help him snap back? Right now he looks like he won’t live to tomorrow; he has been sleeping with his head underneath his body today when yesterday he was fine. Also now his legs are spread out in front of him instead of underneath like before.

    Thanks for the help.

    He did not make it, at least I have three healthy mandarins
