If you want your babies to recover they need the liquid BComplex that is recommended In the link @Isaac 0 gave you. It is the best there is for getting them back on their feet and legs strong. 1 ml daily per duckling over a tasty treat. This liquid b complex will say injectable but we use it orally for our waterfowl. They need this asap

Please read the entire niacin thread too. Also, concrete is not a suitable substrate material, they need to be moved to something much softer like straw or wood shavings.
