In the Brooder
- Apr 28, 2013
I have two 6 week old Peking ducks and one of them can not walk normally. One of his legs is basicly underneath him but behind and the other is held way out to the side and sort of twisted under him. It happened fairly suddenly about 2 weeks ago and ever since I hAve been supplementing them with niacin but he hasn't improved. I did notice he walked a little strange when I first got him but I thought he just had big feet as he would kind of step on top of the other one, but not drastically and suddenly it got pretty bad. Other than giving the niacin which isn't helping I don't know what else todo. He seems healthy otherwise. They are on shavings and kept inside since I live in michigan and the weather sucks here, so he doesn't get a ton of exercise right now, but he doesn't walk much anyways since he kind of flops around and wobbles. Any suggestions??
