    None of my local stores carried brewers yeast or niacin tablets, so I was stuck with getting liquid Vitamin-B Complex. Does anyone know how much to give my 1 week old duckling, and do I give it daily? Thanks!

    Are you having issues or giving it as a supplement? What is the dose listed for an adult?

    I am not a vet and don't have a lot of duckling experience, but I am treating a duckling with wry neck from what I suspect is a vitamin deficiency. I would say if you are giving it as a supplement to prevent a vitamin deficiency then add one adult dose to 1 gallon of water and allow them constant access. If you are treating wry neck let me know and I will share what I have been doing so far, which seems to be working.
