    Hello all. I just noticed my month or so old duckling looks a little bow legged. He is eating and drinking fine. It was suggested for me to put him on a flock raiser to get more niacin. My question is...should I put him on a supplement as well, or just give the new food time? He is a pekin and growing fast! I just don't want him to have permanent issues. Thanks in advance :)

    Brewers yeast, different from Baker's yeast. I have a few friends who raise ducks on here, they all told me to start adding brewers yeast, 1TBSP per cup of food.

    Can I just pick that up at a grocery store?

    I did. If you have a grocery store that caters to a more nich market it will more likely be there, or a health food store.
