    Hi,
    I have 3 Pekin ducklings. One walks on top of its feet and when it stands it has one of its feet that overlaps the other. When it cleans it's self after playing in the water it spins in a circle.. the other two ducklings aren't having this problem. So I was wondering if anyone has had this problem and if anyone has any suggestions on how I can help to fix this problem for my poor baby.

    Thank you for reading this!

    Are you supplementing their feed? If you already are, how much? If you're supplementing and you're sure it's enough then I'd assume it was a deformity or injury.

    you really should consult a vet because it's very possible that it will he worse and a large breed duck will have a very hard time getting around with legs like that.
