    I have a 6 month old female Pekin duck - "Pig". We recently moved our three ducks and one goose in with the chickens in the coop for the winter. They were with them for two days and on the second day (today) we walked into the coop to find her near the door with the chickens walking all over her unable to walk and weak. She is able to move both legs and they are the same temperature. We took her out and put her by herself with food and water this morning. This evening she is looking very depressed, not much energy, doesn't eat fruit out of my hand like she normally does, she eats it but not very enthusiasticly like normal. I put electrolyte/vitamin mix in her water and she has free access to some more fruit and barley. I also put her friends back in with her to keep her company because she is not herself. I am pretty worried about my lil "Pig" and wondering if there is anything else I should be doing? I do not access to vets with much avian knowledge. Please help!

    New discovery - lettuce green colored diarrhea. Electrolytes and vitamins are not making any changes.
