This is my first time taking care of ducklings, I bought 4 off a local farmer all of them looked healthy but in the next few days after i took them home i noticed the smallest one kind of stumbled on its own feet. They are around 4 weeks old now. what should i do to make her stop stepping on her own feet?

I have also read up on things like giving them niacin but i feel like i dont know enough about it to give it to her

Welcome aboard

the b complex is awesome. I have a male Pekin that couldn’t take more than 3 or 4 steps before having to sit, he can walk half way across our yard now and his legs keep getting stronger. It really helps
