i recommend finding a wildlife rescue rehab center. they'll be able to raise it in a way that wont tame it, so that it can be later released back into the wild

Until you find a wildlife rehab center, DO NOT put the duck in water! (Unless it is totally feathered.) If it is still a down-covered baby it can quickly and easily drown. A little bit for drinking is fine but it doesn't need to swim yet.

Hope you find a center soon. That will really be the best thing for the little fella.
