    Hi everyone, my name is Lee-Anne and I have been lurking this forum since just before getting my ducklings. I am new to raising ducklings, and will also be adding some chicks to my flock as well so I wanted to join the community as its been one of my biggest go-to's for research.

    I currently have 4 ducklings named Duckzilla, Duckie, Flip & Flop and they turn 3 weeks today! In a few weeks once I have their coop/run set up & they start feathering they will go outside, however if the niacin doesn't start to improve Duckie's legs she may get to be the lucky house duck.

    I look forward to meeting & learning from you all!

    Hope your duckling will recover. You may want to ask the duck folks, if there is something else you can give her. .

    PS duck folks generally give Brewer's yeast but I don't know how much.

    Thank you all so much for the warm welcome & the helpful links! I'll be checking them out for sure!

    Drumstick Diva, thank you for the warm thoughts! I have been providing them with a vitamin supplement that contains niacin, I'll need to wait on shipping for actually brewer's yeast as I cannot find any where I live (it is especially frustrating living in a big agricultural area).
