Hiya
I’m new to ducklings, I have a duckling that hatched yesterday and I have brought it inside today and noticed that it throws its head back so far that it nearly or does fall over. Does anyone know what this is or how I can help it. Should I go to the vets.

Thanks

Yes it throws its head back like that chicken, I have a video? I don’t know how to attach it. It has been eating and drinking. It’s only about a day old. We went to the vets and the gave something that would help in regards to a thiamine deficiency.
Thank you for replying :)

Do you have Durvet liquid BComplex? It has 100 mg of thiamine and 100 mg of niacin both would be good for your little one just 2-3 drops right along the bill daily till one week old then 1/2 ml till 3 weeks then 1 ml . Is this thiamine the vet gave a long acting dose?
