This forum just saved my duckling's life!!
« on: June 25, 2010, 14:41 »
This is a big THANK YOU to all of you duckies on the forum. I'd read in an old-ish thread some time ago that you can give honey water to a newly hatched duckling if it looks a little weak. I had one who had struggled to hatch last night/this morning and was just looking exhausted so I tried the honey in water trick and the little one has perked up brilliantly! Still not out of the woods I suspect, but definitely stronger! Thanks so much all of you  :D

So glad it is doing well now. I've had a couple that just seem like the hatch took all their energy and seem completely done in but it really seems to perk them up.
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

Thanks Kate  :D latest is that the little one has gone from strength to strength, and is doing brilliantly! I think I have 'honey water junkies' now though - they peck my hand looking for the tea spoon whenever I change their water!!  :D
