    I have a 6 week old pekin duck who's neck has been crooked since birth I guess I've given him vitamins and everything! Question if he is eating and drinking also playing in the pool with the other ducks should I be worried. He does lay down a lot but other then that he is very normal.
    Also tried getting a picture but it was to dark when I went to but them up for the night.

    There is a genetic condition called wry neck. I believe it's similar wry tail. Can you take it to a vet?

    They told me she probably had an injury and did x-rays and blood test.
