My duck can't walk

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm new to this and would so appreciate people's feedback,
I have a duck well 22 of them I have lost a few they start of having trouble in walking then when I open the cage up in the morning she has died ūüėĘ It's heart breaking as I don't know what is causing this. Today my duck was dragging herself on the floor I have attached a picture I actually think at one point she was having a fit I have now separated her and kept her indoors tonight as she will get tramped on by the others and thought this is what could of killed my others!!
They are all female and are about 29weeks old. Any advice please? [IMG][IMG]

Ducks can also have a niacin deficiency  - I don't know if they also get Marek's diseases like chickens.  If you could get in touch with  Miss Lydia(user name),  she really knows her stuff about ducks.

Niacin deficiencies can cause some leg issues. The duck forum members can help you with ideas for adding it to their diet.

 

Good luck!

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
