    Def okay for the rest to have it and can help if any of those might be prone to leg or neurological issues.

    Pill is fine if you can get the B complex just be sure not to buy niacin that is time released or flush free. Brewers yeast is good to use over their feed 1 Tab per 1 cup of feed.
    The only dif I see in pill compared to liquid B complex is liquid would most likely would work quicker. Use both BY and complex until you see no seizures. Then cut back to only the BY again till 10 weeks old

    Anything you can't find around where you live can be purchased on line I have to buy most everything I need for my flock on line.

    Thanks for the advice I’m lookin online now for the liquid Vit B but with the pill form for now I jus add it to the water or feed it to him? And do I do a whole pill or half? I’m sorry for all the questions I’m new to the duck scene

    What is the mgs 1 pill? you'll want your duckling to have at least 125-150 mgs of niacin in the amt you give him. I'd add to his water that amount of mgs to 1 gal of water mixed real well. 5-7 weeks old I'd go with 150 mgs.

    That's what we're here for so please ask all you want.

    What all is in your electrolyte powder I would think that would be okay though.
