    Hi,

    I was just wondering if anyone could tell me why my moms Pekin is falling on her right side when she walks. She puts her right wing out as if she was using it to catch herself from falling.

    Thank you

    @lovemyducks2015 Welcome to BYC.

    Can you give us more info?
    how old, how long has this going on, what does she eat , has she been laying eggs? Have you checked her over bottom of feet etc for any thing out of the norm.

    She could have an injury, have had a stroke, some more detail might help.

    In the meantime, see if she can float in a tub of lukewarm water. Do not leave her alone in there - but watch closely, look for some more clues.
