I had just gotten a pekin duck from a farm. I noticed he has an exaggerated walk and sometimes tips over when trying to catch up to the other ducks. I have been giving him niacin and oregano (incase his joints are inflamed) at first i thought i was due to his weight but now he's on a steady diet it hasn't gotten any better. It doesn't seem to be bothering him and he seems just happy to be here and getting to play all the time, but i am just nervous there is a bigger issue. any ideas are welcomed.

If at first you don't fricassee, fry, fry a hen

Have you checked the bottoms of his feet to make sure he doesn't have bumble foot?

It takes weeks to sort out a deficiency.
How old is the duck?
He gets niacin and just started giving him liquid B and he doesnt have bumble foot. Where I live its winter and the weather is getting colder with snow, so they are not eating as much. that makes it hard to tell if he is getting all the medicine.
