I have a young Pekin drake, about 4 months old, who isn't walking well. It seems to affect both legs, so it's not like he's limping, just sort of hobbling. Sometimes he moves better, sometimes worse. This morning I noticed he was sitting down a lot. There are no other symptoms, he's eating/drinking/pooping well, no discharges or swellings. He just has difficulty with getting from Point A to Point B. The other day my son put him in the duck pool, he stayed there for several hours. I guess he couldn't get himself out. When we lifted him out he was really hobbling, as if the time in the pool made his condition worse. He lives with other ducks and was raised with other ducklings his age, and none of them have had this problem. I think it could be congenital, I think the hatchery these ducklings came from has inferior stock. This drake was one of 4 that was given to me by a stranger, someone who got my name from the local 4-H. She had ordered ducklings for her kids then decided she couldn't keep them, so I offered to take them off her hands. I don't have her contact information any more. One drake had awfully spraddled legs, he walked like he had just been riding a horse all day. Another duck had twisted feathers on one wing. The other female duck seemed fine, and I have already re-homed these three. We had planned to keep this drake because we already have 2 other adult female Pekins. But now I want to either try to remedy his problem if possible, or sell him to someone for dinner. Please let me know what you think his problem could be, and if it could be fixed, or if it's contagious. I will start to give him the Poly-vi-sol vitamins (withOUT iron) to see if that helps. What else could I do? Anyone want a duck?
