    Hello, I just hatched out 7 adorable ducklings. I had to intervene because there were humidity issues. The last one I helped out seems to have a "crooked" neck. She is eating and drinking and pooping fine. Is there anything I can do? I have vitamins in their water and they are on 20% non medicated crumbles. I can't tell if its skeletal or muscular. I seen alot of info on chicks, but I don't know if the same applies to ducks. The neck does not go all the way back, but it is always looking upwards (as if it sees something above her) . If anyone has any helpful info, I would appreciate it! Thanks [​IMG]
