I have a week old mallard duck. He is very weak & won’t open his mouth. I put a hot hands on him (& in a fleece pouch) to warm him up & his breathing is better. What else can I do for him?

I’m not a specialist or anything but I would recommend you raise him like you would raise a baby chick. You could use an old container open the lid and put hay for bedding with uv lighten for chickens. Also have some sort of shallow dish for water. If he doesn’t eat try feeding him. ITS UP TO YOU IF YOU CHOOSE TO TRY THESE TIPS

At that age, any animal can go down hill very very quickly. If it were my duck I would find a vet as soon as possible.
