    I had my 4 week old khaki ducklings outside enjoying the weather yesterday. When I was carrying them inside, one managed to get loose and fall in the garage on the concrete floor. I immediately picked her up and looked her over and she seemed fine. I then had her walk around to be sure everything was working (i.e. her legs). Now today, she is limping horribly but she doesn' appear in pain and seems happy. What can I do? I feel horrible

    No sign of a break? then maybe a sprain. Rest and some good poultry vits. or Because you say Pekins I would rec a good B complex vitamin in liquid form TSC or local Walmart. add to drinking water ducklings are prone to leg issues when they don't get enough niacin and most of us have to feed chick starter. which doesn't contain enough for ducklings and Pekins growing so fast need it especially.

    Hope the lil one makes full recovery.
