I suspect it needs niacin. Should a tape its legs? If so, How? It"s about a month old Runner.
This somewhat reminds me of what happened to one of my chicks once... She had splayed leg though which is totally different:
I believe you are right, your duck needs more niacin. How long has this been happening? If it has been going on for awhile it can become very painful. I would recommend niacin tablets but I don't think you need to brace it's legs.
Hope your duckling gets better soon.
Here's an article I found if you want some more info.
what happened to the chick with spayed legs ???
We had to put her down. I later learned that it was possible to fix splayed leg with braces. It would have taken a lot of effort but I still would have done it if I knew...
Thank you for the link. I found several websites with info about ducks and niacin, but they were all extremely vague. Without your link I would have probably overdosed my duck on niacin.
No problem, glad to help. Just keep in mind, I'm no expert on ducks XD but glad to help anyways
