    How old is she?
    Did she have a mate recently that died?
    Have her surroundings recently changed in those two months?
    Is she molting while it is cold over there?

    I saw that you are feeding her just corn. Can you get something else for her, like a chick crumble?

    her mate has not recently died, her surroundings haven't changed recently, i don't know if she is molting but don't think so, she is an indian runner duck she lives with about 15 other ducks in a large orchard with a pond
