Ok brand new to this site and to raising ducklings so need a little help. We rescued 2 duckings from a storm drain and they were doing fine for about 2 weeks. I believe they are only about 3 weeks old as still very tiny. I filled up my bathtub with a little bit of water and let them clean themselves off after the first week. The smaller duck started to stumble a little after that and wouldn't walk anywhere. Now that has cured itself within a day or two but I, not learning my lesson and thinking no harm could come of it, did it again. Mind you, I never let them out of my sight whilst in water, and the older one is doing just fine but, yet again the young duck can't walk anymore. It started breathing real heavily too I noticed this last time he does put his head under water to clean himself and don't know if maybe water got in his inner ear and threw him off balance or something. Its seems to be every time he gets wet he can't walk for a few days but this time it has affected his breathing and he hasn't pooed in awhile either. I have no idea if these are two different issues or one big problem. Keeping him warm under lamp and out of water now but he seems very ill and need some help. Please help me find out what is causing this issue.
P.S. when walking and not acting ill eats just fine and lots of water...very healthy appetite...but when can't move to well doesn't even walk over to food or water dish
