    Does the spot on their chest that puffs out a bit feel gritty when you gently press on it? This would be the grit that they have been eating. We really need more information before we can help. How old are your ducks? How long have they been eating only grit? Is there any other symptoms? Do you have a heat lamp on them? Any information would be helpful.

    There is a lot of good information on this sight to help you with raising your ducks. Go to the DUCKS section off of the main page and from there you should be able to get the specifics and needs of ducks or ask other questions to help you out for what else you need to do.
