    Hi! This is not my first time having/raising ducks but this is my first time seeing this and I need help.. so I have Paci Campbell ducks, still kinda small but I think it’s a female. Any ways it’s hips are going off to the sides and it seems to have trouble walking raised another kind of duck before so I don’t know if this is normal or not.. can someone help me?

    Remove the duckling from the rest if they are picking on him. What are you feeding them?

    @CayugaJana I thought I had your pics of the B Complex in my favs but can't find it please give info

    Your duckling needs to get on liquid B Complex sounds like it has a niacin deficiency give it to all your ducklings When feeding chick feed it's always best to supplement with a from of niacin because chick feed doesn't have enough in it for water fowl.
    Put some kind of antibiotic ointment on those wings.
