does that effect her walking and her laying down when she eats/drink
No that won't affect her walking. Sometimes my ducks will eat laying down. I think that's okay. Does she only eat laying down? Or just sometimes? The leg streching is normal. My ducks do that too.
What are you feeding them? if she seems lethargic often she may need more niacin. They sell brewers yeast which you add to their food. I'm no duck expert but I do have ducks so I know a little. :)

you can find small things of brewers yeast (also called nutritional yeast) with the popcorn seasonings.

OR you can get a much larger bag at your feed store. There you can buy "farm grade" which is much less money than "human grade"

I am taking care of a Peking duck for my daughter because her Drake was mounting her every day and has sores no feathers on her neck. Anyway you get the picture, she needed to heal. Here's my question. I have 2 grown ducks both hens, small compared to her, the Pekingfollows them around and they just runfrom her. Will they ever be her friend??

it takes mine a week, maybe 2 to settle after a change in the flock.

do make sure no one is getting hurt, and everyone is getting food to eat
