    Give it a couple droppers full. Up to 100 mgs a day per bird.

    Niacin deficiency. You should feed them all niacin as chick feed doesn't have enough in it. Just buy some cheap niacin capsules (so you can open them up) at the drugstore. (NO time release). Open up the cap and sprinkle 100 mgs. per gallon in their drinking water. Do this every time you have to wash out/fill up the waterer. This is how I always raise my ducklings, and no leg problems ever.
