    Does anyone have any ideas on making some type of brace for a Pekin duckling about 4-5 weeks old that can’t walk, he has neurological damage and trips on his own feet and as he’s gotten bigger he can no longer walk , he does kinda get from place to place but most of his movements are Tripping and sort of crawling to where he has to go , he also gets flipped over and can’t flip himself back the right way.

    It may if neurological. But many people keep poultry and other animals that have handicaps. So if @Rosie1115 is willing hopefully she'll find or make something that will work for Pekin duckling. Are you giving your duckling the Liquid B complex 1 ml a day?
