Lame Duck?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My grandma recently bought two little ducklings and they have been growing faster then weeds! But we have a yellow one that doesn't walk much even when outside. She hobbles for a bit and then will just lay down.. In the water she loves to swim but walking around doesn't seem to be her strong suit. Any ideas? (I will be adding a picture tomorrow of the little ones)

Let her swim more.. might make her legs stronger

This may be a niacin deficiency. Some ducklings need more niacin than their feed provides.

Have you been providing supplemtal niacin? If so this could be something else.
