    Are they by any chance crested swedish? Crested ducks are more likely to have neurological problems - which could present in symptoms such as seizures. If not there is a number of other possibilities of what could have caused the seizures.

    It could be from consuming something toxic- have they been outside in the garden- could they have eaten something they shouldnt. Is the crumble feed you have for them fresh ?
