Thank you so much for your reply..
It's had now been two and a half days since he hatchted.. He growing stronger every hour... It's so inspiring to see him make progress... I keep him moving and continue to challenge him.. He has started eating.. I started him on super puree'd cat food... With lots of water .. Since at first was not interested in drinking water straight. He ate alot of the cat food but then I read on one site that hard boiled eggs would be great source of protein for him... He loves that stuff much more than the cat food.. I only give him the
yolk because it's much easier to crumble.
He has begun to sit like normally with his feet in the proper position.. Which is definate progress since he at first wouldn't even un curl his webbed little toes.. I rubbed his feet alot and layed them flat for him until he caught on... I wish I could figure out a way to upload some pics.. Even from those you can see the difference..
I still refuse to leave him alone.. I'm Always with him... Even now I'm leaned over his tub playing him some frank Sinatra... ^_^ he loves music... I think becuase my husband played alot while he's in incubation.. I try to play positive songs for him.. I even tell people that come around him that if your gonna think negative thoughts or pitty him in any way to just go away.. He only needs positive feelings and thoughts right now...
He went for his first "swim" today .. I'm tuppperware lid that's only about 3/4 of a inch deep... He did what he's supposed to do.. He dunked his beek in it... He's also doing other normal things.. Like preening himself.. And other little things that are natural instincts.. Only problem seems to be muscle coordination.. But he's trying so hard..
I'm gonna put a link to my face book on here becuase that is where all of his pics are ... From the begginniNg till just earlier.. He's a mallard by the way. I would upload them to here but my iphone won't let me.. So yea please take a look he's hard to pass up ^_^ http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000233678595

oh yea and thank for the info for Sebastian I actually I read his story right before I wrote the intial post.. Her story had me balling.. Holdin my baby duck and tellin him .. " see ... Sebastain did it.. That's means you can too! " but I will still go to the link you sent ^_^
Thanks so much for the support.. I trully need some right
And oh yea.. I've decided to name him Charlie ... Because I don't know if it's a boy or girl yet I think it's fits perfect ...
So until next time ...
