    He is 2 days old and all the others can stand and walk. He can stand but he falls like 2 seconds later he falls, it looks like one of his feet slip underneath the other then he falls on his side.
    Here is a video and some pictures.
    My mom was thinking maybe its wing, because wings help banlance and one looks bigger than the other. So heres a pic:
    Its a bit hard to see but he has a piece of his wing missing we think. Maybe deformed.

    Here hes lying on his side with his feet out

    if it is a wing problem could I fix it?
    and its definately not splayed legs take a look at this video:

    I could really use some help so if you have ANY suggestions let me know!

    I know this isnt much help, but all I can say is that sometimes nature has to chose who will surive and who will not. I am not sure what exactly is wrong with the duckling but I dont think there is anything you can do to help it. I am so sorry to say but I dont think that little guy is going to make it. However as much as nature is full of negatives, it is even fuller of positives and you never know! It may learn to walk!

    Hope the condition changes for the better!
