    Jpat has a point about possible mating.
    My thoughts were coccidisosis or a vitamin/niacin deficiency.

    If you don’t know if you have drakes, they are probably too young to try having sex.

    You have checked your duck’s feet, right?

    A possible result of the falling down. Perhaps a rock or stick scratched it.

    Check your ducks legs.... are they swollen? Bow-legged at all? Any scabs on the feet or legs? What do you feed it?

    I just looked up how to tell and no I do not have a drake, I have four female-thank goodness!

    I had been given them Niacin, they were all looking good. I believe she injured her leg or hip when I was transferring them to the big coop, they ran over each other and she was injured. It seems to come and go. I'm going to take her out to the yard and get video of her walking tomorrow and post it here. Should I take a picture of her vent so we know what we are dealing with? It was horrible today, I'm hoping it will be better tomorrow.

    She has a bit of a turned in foot but no swelling. When she originally got hurt I had put my hand under her, between her legs, and let her legs hang down and there was this crushing & loud pop sound. I kept her in the house for a couple of days, she was able to stand and walk. This was three weeks ago.
