Heavy breathing

My 2 ducks are 2 days old. 1 is pretty big, very curious and moves around and eats well. My other little duck breathes very heavy and naps a lot and does not eat much. Im worried that there is something wrong.

     you could try it with some honey water to see if this boosts its
    energy ...but bear in mind that they arent always very active for the
    first 2 days
    make sure the food you offer is small enough for the little one to cope with - may be worth feeding it a mash to get it started
     good luck
