    I have a duck that is a year old and for almost a week now he won't stand up I brought him in gave him a bath and I see no visible injuries. When he was in the bath he would stand up but not for long and it seems to be his right side that is bothering him he moves his legs fine in the water and moves it around when he is laying down. Any suggestions on what might be wrong with him.

    Niacin deficiency? New Duck Disease? I have this same problem with my one week old duckling (see my post a few below yours!). Mine's on antibiotics and just started her on niacin supplement - I just don't know what's wrong with her? Sounds similar to yours though....
