    newly hatched duckling questions

    Hi again everyone Just thought I’d check in to give an update. The duck that had issues with its legs, Dot, is walking normally now. Both ducks have grown so much so fast but Sonny is definitely much bigger which makes me think they might me different breeds and/or genders. I do have one...

    Also Dot seems to have more strength in her legs this morning which is encouraging. :) I’ve uploaded some photos of them having breakfast just now. I blended up some spinach for them too as that was recommended also.

    Thanks so much for the tips. We live on a small island so unfortunately there aren’t many farms and no tractor supplies anywhere. Good advice about human liquid b complex - the pharmacies here I went to were sold out but I have a few lore to try today and a health food store too so fingers...

    Thank you! The little one seems to be trying to stand now a bit which is great although she still lies down after a big effort. Again eating and drinking is fine. She is smaller than her brother / sister but think that’s just her. I haven’t been able to find any liquid Niacin or brewers yeast...

    Yes thank you so much. It was only on this surface so I could take a video / pic to show what I was talking about. We have them on a blanket in the brooder. Will try a warm water bath too and have seen various videos on splinting. Thanks again!

    If it is a deformity and it can’t be fixed, will it’s quality of life be alright? I’m very attached already and want to do all I can but don’t want it to be suffering. It seems quite happy! Just quieter and less feisty than it’s brother / sister and it is eating and drinking.

    Thanks for all the response! I’m trying to send a video but it won’t send. It keeps hopping to get to food. Think one side is worse than the other. The duck doesn’t seem to be uncomfortable but it’s hard to tell! I hope it’s not in pain. I’m is managing to get to food and water and I keep...

    Hard to say. Don’t think so. They’re just both bent and she’s hopping and just wants to be lying down the whole time whereas the other one is walking everywhere

    She just wants to sit down and hops / clambers to the food whereas Sonny stands tall now.

    Another question- Dot, the youngest one has been a bit funny on one of her legs and we thought maybe it was cause or the incubator but we noticed it in the brooder too. We thought also it was because she / he was young and just wobbly on its feet but I looked at her today and she can’t walk on...
