    What age is the duck? What have you been feeding it? Is it still eating and drinking okay? If it's an adult female, has it laid an egg recently? We'll need a lot more information to be able to help.

    Yes it eats and drinks well. I have no idea what the gender is? How can you tell? It's about 4 to 5 months.

    What were you giving it for feed? What breed is it? If it's a domestic breed aside from muscovy, it can be sexed by its quack - a female has a loud quack, a male has a low raspy quack.

    Gender is important because egg binding can cause lameness.

    Looks like a pekin. So what have you been feeding?

    I also don't think he's four or five months old. A 4/5 month old duck would be fully feathered. He's probably two months old judging from the size and lack of feathering.
