    Hi I recently got my very first batch of chicks and ducklings! Oh the excitement!! I noticed that one of my ducklings was a lil wobbly but it seemed to be getting a long fine so I didn't think anything of it. We put them in the same brooder with plenty of water, food, and heat. I have had them for a week now, and the wobbly one has gotten worse. His wobble looks terrible, he has some moister around his eyes, and I can see skin in some places. I noticed that some of my other ducklings has the later two but not the wobble. I feed them non medicated chick starter. What can I do? I would be devastated if I lost them. I was reading that Thomas Brewers yeast garlic and powder might help but I don't know if I can give it to my chicks as well. If anyone can give me some kind of assistance that would be greatly appreciated!

    I would not give garlic, but brewer's yeast or B complex for niacin.
