Hi, there.

My pekin duck, Gooseberry, is about 6 weeks old. When she was about two weeks, we noticed that she was a bit pigeon-toed, but the vet mentioned that it should go away on its own. Now, at 6 weeks, she is still having trouble walking. She has grown incredibly fast and lacks the ability to run or walk without stumbling over herself. She continues to eat and drink and walk around a little, but stays seated most of the time while playing in the yard with our chicks (the same age).

Does anyone have any advice? We have heard that a niacin deficiency may be the problem, is that something I should pursue?

Thanks.
