    Well...after reading many posts on this website about Niacin deficiencies and other leg issues...I've come the the conclusion that instead of sitting here trying to find a cause for my two gimpy babies, I should try some of this stuff.
    While there were many suggestions as to why 2 of 8 of my month old Muscovy ducklings started limping a week ago. I thought at first maybe injury (slipped tendons, bumblefoot, injury, etc.) but after reading about all of these and carefully inspecting my little guys, I simply don't think this is what it is. The suggestion that sounded the most like what may be going on with the little guys is a Niacin Deficiency.
    So now I'm off to the pharmacy to grab some Niacin tablets. I will post my results and observations in a few days...hopefully the results may help some other duckie lovers on here.
    Cheers!
    Allie
