    Could be a lot of things... Hopefully not what's in this thread but worth checking out the symptoms for a possible match...

    Quote: Asides from that you could try searching this forum for those symptoms in ducks, using the search bar. I don't keep ducks yet so can't help much.

    Best wishes and [​IMG]

    I'm wondering if the food is okay and not moldy or old (from feed store). Also he may have a niacin deficiency - ducks are highly susceptible to this.

    Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]





    BYC has a very useful learning center [​IMG]






    I ordered some ducks many years ago that had this problem and the out come was bleak but out of the 25 ducks I still have one left so not trying to make you upset just ready ...

    Do you have any poison's that have been used around your yard as this can really get to ducks with them web feet ....

    I know this sounds silly but a little crushed up charcoal in the feed can clear up poison or slow it down .....

    Hopefully he will recover ....
