    Hi I just picked 2 3 day old pekin ducklings and I was wondering if his foot is ok? It seems like he falls over on it a bit. Is it ok? Is there anything I can do or will he be ok?

    Make sure he's getting a niacin supplement if you're feeding him chick starter (brewer's yeast is a good way to add it).
