    Can you weigh him?

    Until Kathy comes along, I would give 0.05 ml per pound of weight once a day for 5 days. That would be 0.25 ml for a 5 pound bird or 0.5 ml for a 10 pound bird. How much does your duck weigh? If you don’t have a kitchen scale, hold him while you weigh yourself, then weigh just yourself, then subtract your weight to get his.

    Then you will have to guess.

    Too little medicine won't do any good.
    Too much may be bad.

    He doesn’t hardly walk. I’ve tried apple cider vinegar, vitamins, niacin just in case. He doesn’t have any injuries so I’m giving this a shot. He also has foamy eye.
