    I can think of three cases this week...

    Wondering if there is a common thread, and if we could aggregate what we have found out here in this thread.....

    Great idea!

    It would be good to give the ducks age, the symptoms seen when the duck was having a seizure and what they were doing just before the seizure. For example, most seizures involve convulsions - uncontrollable muscles contracting and relaxing repeatedly, shaking, drooling, passing out, etc.

    I'm not one of the three, but I had a duckling that would pass out when it got stressed. This occurred at a very young age and it grew out of it. I was very fortunate it wasn't something more serious.
