    My newly hatched mallard duckling wont stop shaking its feet, it looks like theyre vibrating! Its causing the duckling to not be able to walk properly and to fall onto its back alot. The duckling was born with the yolk sac not fully absorbed and a piece of tissue hanging from the umbilical area aswell,i tied it off and it dried up and has been removed, but could the shaking be related to this? And will it get better so the duckling can walk?
