I have a peiking duck who about 10 weeks old, and he’s laying on his belly with his legs out behind him. He’s eating and drinking as normal, and pruning. I can manually bend his legs but when I try to stand him up his feet curl under and won’t spread out unless I help him, when I get him on his flat feet he stands vertically and won’t bend, he cant

bear his weight. We have him isolated as to not get trampled, I don’t know what to do. Help, please.

Welcome to BYC, sorry your duck can't walk. What are you feeding him? Is a vet an option?
For a while it was just the chick starter, but then I JUST changed it to corn, wheat, grain, and oat blend. And the closest bird vet to me is NYC, I asked my local vet and they don’t do birds.

If I were you I would start feeding him some Purina Flock Raiser or Nutrena All Flock and I would start giving him some Niacin. What you are feeding him now does not have the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that growing ducks need.
