    Muscovy mama has 'pushed week old duckling from nest...'
    mama left him behind when they took a stroll...hearing him cry
    out while being lost I was able to find him....
    in finding and checking out the little darling I see he/she has
    a crooked neck...wry neck, I believe... is there anything at all
    that I can do to help this little fella??

    this "litter" also lost one to flip-over syndrome...
    don't understand why so many problems this time...all
    previous births have been defect or problem free...
    surroundings are the same...puzzled

    Try doing a search for wry neck
    Basically it is a mineral/ vitamin deficiency. Try polyvisol without iron infant vitamins and capsules of vitamin e cut open and squeezed in the mouth. Good luck . Sorry you have a sick baby:-(
