I dont know if its a he or a she but it cant walk and is always sleeping
You using duck or chick feed? Try getting some Brewers yeast and or sav-a-chick powders.
I dont know what its called but im feeding them medicated brown little pellets
Can you post a picture of the bag? The duckling might be having a reaction to the medicated feed and or the feed is insufficient(not providing the proper nutrition). What store you using?
No its not the feed i recieved them today and he/she was like this, its a clear bag and its packed by lb
Brewers yeast(niacin) will help with the walking issue(legs). Sav-a-chick sell electrolytes for energy. Next time you get feed specify getting duckling food or game bird feed. They need the higher levels of protein and niacin to develop with out hitting issues. First 4 weeks get a starter feed, then use grower feed for the next 4 weeks and then finish with finisher/maintenance feed. After that depends if you have a male or female. If you get a female you need layer feed for when she starts to lay her eggs. When she stops switch back to maintenance feed.
Ok thank you
