Hello- for those of you that have cured your duck of a niacin deficiency- how long after you gave them niacin did you start to see an improvement? I have a three year old pekin that I’ve been adding niacin to his water for about three days now...thank you!

He was walking fine until about five days ago- but had no sprain/injury to either foot Or leg that I could see so I was just assuming it was a niacin deficiency since there was a recent food change. He appears to be slightly better today

Let me get back to you later today, but its unlikely niacin is the problem here if the symptoms started in the matter of a few days given his age. We tend to see niacin problems in young birds, and even if the diet was low in niacin, it'd be a few weeks until you'd really start noticing it.
