    So far she is doing good! My husband said he checked on her earlier this morning and she was fine. She hasn't had any issues that I have seen either and I have been up sense 5:30. Thank you so much for asking about her!!!

    I would continue the Bcomplex daily until she is about fully feathered just to play it safe. Ducklings are most vulnerable to nutrition issues at the time they are growing fastest!

  8. Thank you for posting this. I have a four and one of them has had two seizures. I was looking to see if anyone else had the problem and saw your post. Thank you to all that gave advice as I will be taking advantage of it as well.

    Definitely try the B Complex! It seems to be working for my baby! Almost 48 hours without any issues sense starting them on it! Also be sure to give them room temperature water. That was a suggestion as well from these wonderful people! This forum is AMAZING and I have learned so much already!!! Hope your babies will be ok! It's so scary when it happens and you have no clue what to do to help them!!!!
