I apologize that no one has responded to your question sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just came online and saw your question. My name is ***** ***** I’m a biologist with over 20 years experience keeping ducks. I'm sorry to hear of this problem. If you still need help, some additional information will be useful.

Has Donald's condition changed since yesterday?

Does he have any appetite? What are all the things you usually feed him?

Do you keep him indoors or outside?

Is he a domestic mallard, or did he come from the wild?

Thank you.
