    I have a duckling which has had a bit of a though start as it hacked 5 days early!!! It had a slight hernia and one deformed leg. His leg and hernia are both doing great. However I'm getting stighy worried that he hasn't pooped yet as its been about 20 hours since he hatched... Am I right to be worried?
    Is there anything I can do?

    20 hrs, isn't really that long. If it hasn't gone in three days..then, worry, But not much we can do about that. Unless, it isn't eating and drinking, then you can help it along with that..and that..could take care of it.
    Maybe someone will chime in here.
