    I have three ducks, a mallard, Khaki cambell and a big white one, all females. All have been broody at one stage but now two have suddenly today now not able to stand, can move their legs and flap their wings. The white one is fine but the other two are not stable! They are a year old and very important pets, I am quite restricted to what i can get, the khaki cambell also has sleepy eyes and doesnt quack properly, HELP!!!

    I have read other threads but the majority blame a drake and they have been in the same land so i am not sure if it could have been something theyve eaten, why only two are affected? I need help :/

    They may have eaten something toxic.

    Here are instructions for a flush to remove it from their system, and charcoal slurry that absorbs toxins. They need lots of fresh water, and if it is something toxic, that needs to be found and removed from their environment.

    It could be a dead animal, dead pile of plant materials (botulism), or some kind of chemical - including plants - that has affected them.
