I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. We don't have many avian vets on this site. It's not clear to me what your concern is. Do you think that her droppings are too hot - that she's febrile? Please note that a Pekin duck's body temperature at 4 days of age can range from 102-106F.
