wobbly legged ducky

hi not sure if I should be worried or not but one of my 4 week old ducklings seems to be having issues with his legs wobbling a little bit.just his legs not his body, I noticed this about 2 weeks ago. I took him inside to keep a closer eye on him, making sure he wasn't cold or sick or anything else. He acts fine other than the wobbly legs. he walks.around the yard with no problem, but when he's standing still they shake and it sort of seems like he can't stand in one place for a very long time before having to lie down. thought it could be due to lack of niacin but I've been giving all my ducks. is it possible I'm using the wrong kind? I don't know if any of you have seen my other threads but its my cuddle duck grey feather that's having the issue. any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated Thanks!

It would help to know what product you are feeding him. Purina

Poultry Feed is designed for young ducklings and meets all of their nutritional needs, including niacin. If all the other ducklings are healthy, he may need a visit to the vet. He could be exhibiting some form of neuropathy.
