yes over weight ducks can have leg problems too. But most of the time when this young it is a nutrient deficiency.  I don't see how the ducks  could be over weight on the diet it is being fed.

Depends on how bad his legs are. I have seen Pekins pretty bowlegged still getting around good but the Brewers yeast or niacin which ever you decide should help and feeding him a proper diet will help too. I hope you'll post some pics. We have a member here who has a duck that's legs are not the best.  but that duck gets around great.

Lets see if @PotatoWaffles  is on tonight.

125mgs  in a gallon of water so break the pill in half and crush mix with feed or put into their water  if you put it into their water you'll probably have to stir it often or it will probably end up on the bottom of the container.
