    Hello, my 15 week old drake isn't standing up... Like its trying to stand up but it can't and I also don't see anything wrong with his legs. I would like help with measurements of niacin?
     
  2. Can you post a video?

    For Niacin intake i use this, One tablespoon per one cup of feed. It can be found at local stores like Walmart.

  5. I can't really really tell in this pic but is there a mass on his foot? The video looks like he has a hitch in his giddy up.... can you get pictures of his feet bottoms?

    I didn't feel any heat on the joints or any swelling... Maybe its a niacin deficiency?

    That's a great place to start. Any chance of seeing a vet?
