2 week old duckling having a Seizure?

  1. That is great to hear! I'm so happy yours are doing so much better!

    I do make sure I give warm water and they are nearly ready to go out on their own but I have ordered the yeast flakes I saw mentioned and hopefully that will help. I have four ducks and only one has these "seizures". The neck twists back and she flops around, once winding up flat with her back legs spewed out. I am hoping the yeast flakes solve it.

    Yeast flakes for added niacin because they need it if being fed feed for chickens but liquid BComplex when one is already having a problem it works faster an better.

    I have 3 ducks and only 1 having the seizure. She had most of her seizures on her back. If the nutritional yeast doesn't work then definitely try the B Complex. Hope your babies do well on the nutritional yeast!!

    How is your baby doing? Were you able to find the B Complex? Hope she's doing well!
