Hi! I am new to raising ducks, this is my first time. I have 3, 1 & a half week old Pekins that I have been feeding Purina flock starter since I got them. I recently noticed that 1 of them is extremely bow legged. Another one is slightly bow legged, and the third one is absolutely fine. I read about Niacin deficiency and realized that they may not be getting enough from their current feed. I went to Tractor Supply and picked up liquid vitamin b supplement (the one for caddle). Today is my first day ATTEMPTING to give 1mL to each of them. I however am worried that they are not getting the full dosage. I put it on some watermelon mixed with crumble and got two of them to eat most of theirs, but the third didn’t want to touch it. I tried shooting it directly into his throat with the syringe but he definitely did not get the full dose. What is the best way to feed this to them? And is 1 week and a half early enough to catch it that this will restore their legs? I love these little guys and am so worried that I will lose one if not more of them ): p.s, I brought them outside for a little bit so that they can get some grit for the watermelon.
