    I hatched 5 duckling two weeks ago and four are strong and healthy. But,one is still the same size he was when he hatched! [​IMG] he hasnt grown at all! He is getting his fair share of food and water, and he gets brewers yeast in his food every feeding. And is still a little runt?! He also will only breath through his mouth! His nose is stuffed up! Im so worried about him [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I will get a pic of the size difference soon!.... Also! He has been having poopy problems, and his poop sticks to his down [​IMG] ive been going out daily to clean it off to.

    Not all micros die at a young age. What you've described sounds very similar to me but i'm no expert.
