Right off hand, that looks like "wry neck" also known as "crooked neck". It can be treated and there are some good threads with information on it. Here are a couple links to tell you more:

If you post over on the duck forum, you can get more info:

Hi welcome-byc.gif

I too agree with NorthFLChick that your duckling has a case of wry neck. You have been left some great links to check out in this so please do take advantage of them.

Wishing you the very best of luck with your duckling fl.gif

wry neck is NOT a death sentence.  It's only when people don't bother or care to treat the bird, that they just put them down to get rid of them.  Please follow the links you have been given.

Oh! Poor baby. Good luck with her. hugs.gif
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
