Rectory Duckling Update

The small stunted growth rectory duckling is still getting TLC and a course of antibiotics. It has been very shaky on it's feet with balance issues. The Vet prescribed a week to 10 days antibiotics, twice a day to tackle any possible ear infection and hopefully restore it's normal balance. If this does not work then the likelihood is neurological damage which is likely to be permanent. Half way through the treatment it's balance seems to have improved a little, fingers crossed it is an ear infection that will be fixed.

Apart from the balance issue, it is normal and shares the garden during the day with some of the other ducks - but keeps it's distance.
