I would like to get on top of things! So what would be the best vitamins to help his foot and growing?
Ducks get niacin deficiencies which is what causes the leg problems... if you can get Brewers yeast (not baking yeast) sprinkle a tblsp per cup of feed and mix in... or niacin tablets, I think Bcomplex are best... crush them and dissolve in the water... I think you want 150mg niacin per gallon of water... good luck with the little one!
