    Hi :welcome

    I too agree with NorthFLChick that your duckling has a case of wry neck. You have been left some great links to check out in this so please do take advantage of them.

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your duckling :fl

    wry neck is NOT a death sentence. It's only when people don't bother or care to treat the bird, that they just put them down to get rid of them. Please follow the links you have been given.
