Oh, I'm sorry to hear about your blind duckling. You can check for a rescuer in your area in our rescuer listings. You are really looking for a kind adopter or sanctuary I think. Blind birds often do well though if they have a friend who they can stay with and if their area is always kept in the same configuration so they will know where food is and water. Always talk when you are around the duckling so he won't be startled. You might post about the special little guy in the 'ducks needing homes' forum if you really feel you must move him.

I moved your post here but I can understand why it's hard to know exactly where it should go.
