I'd get B complex  and try it mix it into her drinking water.  That will cover all the B's including niacin. 

 

Warm swims in the tub should help too. just be careful she doesn't try to jump out.It sounds like a back injury. If her legs aren't showing signs of heat or swelling.

How old are they?  If ducklings and not completely feathered and the wind is cold yes. If adults let them make up their own mind as long as they aren't in danger.

If your ducks are grown they should have no problem with wind. I am in West Texas where the wind is usually 15-50 mph and my ducks just take what comes. The only problem is when one of them decides they can fly and successfully catches the wind in the right direction. Over their fence they go. So, if yours are prone to acting like they are able to fly you might want to keep an eye on them in heavy winds.

Living where the Central Plains and the Texas Hill Country meet  with 19 chickens, 5 bantams, 15 new chicks, 22 ducks, 11 geese, 7 dogs. Thirteen miles from nowhere and a short drive to anywhere. What more could I want!!!!!

Sorry if this is a repeat question. I just got my two Pekin ducklings yesterday from TSC. I've researched for a few weeks and had a questions out niacin. I got Manna Pro non medicated started for chicks ducks and goslings. There's a niacin supplement listed in the ingredients. Is this good enough or should I get some Brewers yeast and/or niacin tablets just in case?

I checked the ingredients list on the Manna Pro non-medicated starter feed and niacin is listed but only toward the end of the list. So, it is probably a small amount. It would not hurt to add Brewers Yeast to their feed. Just sprinkle a teaspoon on top of their feed each day to supplement what is already in the feed.

I went to Wal mart but couldn't find any Brewers yeast in powder form, only in tablets. Farm n Fleet didn't have it either. I read that frozen peas are a great form of niacin so I got some of those. I cut the peas in half because I figured it might be easier for them. They LOVED them. I'll keep searching for some powdered Brewers yeast though

Just make sure they get some grit with the peas. You can also use a b complex vitamin. Liquid form is easiest.
