    One of my ducks constantly points its tail to the ground and isolates its self from the rest of the flock. It seems to have trouble walking and today i noticed a clicking sound coming from the hip.It's hips appear to be much wider set than the others. they are all about 2 month old "pekins"... i bought them from TSC and believe they are mixed, maybe with a Muscovy? because they have black heads and reddish bills i will try and post a picture of the poor guy and the rest of the flock but if anyone can help it is appreciated thanks

    this sounds serious - I would get the little one to the vet.

    Have there been any accidents? I think there's possibly a serious injury.
