    What is happening to my baby duckling? It is only 1 week old, and in with about 14 other siblings. What causes a perfectly fine duckling to suddenly have an issue like this? It walks around with its head slightly tilted to the left as if it were trying to look at you with its right eye...

    anyone? help!

    i had this problem too, if your duck has the same problem as mine it was an ear infection. causes them to do that. i brought mine to a vet to find out. good luck
