    I have a pekin duck who has had a leg problem for a while. I have tried giving her brewer's yeast, vitamins and electrolytes in her water. I don't know what else to do. She can't walk very far. The leg is follen from the top and the foot is is not moving . Please help .

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you joined the flock! We may need a picture. Also you may want to try and post another thread at Emergencies/Diseases/Injuries forum. People there have lots of knowledge on many things. The only thing that I can think of that could be it but I could be wrong is her legs are getting too cold which I wouldn't be counting on or maybe a fracture. You might need to take her into a vet to get an x-ray. I wish you luck with your Pekin duck and hope she makes a full recovery.
