Duck is sick
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Could you give us some more information?
Can the duck walk, is it male or female? What is its food? Is it part of a flock? Are there drakes in the flock? Is it eating, drinking, defecating? How old is it?
is the duck supposed to just pee out of its butt and it can walk it is a female It stays with chickens so it eats chicken food but now I put it in a chicken crate and it eats duck food 16% protein. it has medicine to keep it hydrated. I have forty chickens and another duck with it. there are no roosters or drakes in the flock. I dont think it is eating much but it is drinking a decent amount. Also it is d]pooping a lot

Can you post a picture of it's poop?
I would get a fecal sample to a vet to check for parasites.
Here, a vet visit can be around $100. A fecal test is about $25.
