    I would put Bently in shallow water only to top of his legs and Never leave him unattended. are you treating him for his problem? Please get the niacin and vitamins if not and start treatment. and [​IMG]

    YES! Bentley can swim fine! And his neck is completely straight now and the breathing issue has seemed to mostly disappear.I hope your duck straightens out!!

    Bentley though seems to have a new issue... He is just a problem child. It seems like both of them have almost all of their white weathers. But one of Bentley's wings sticks out! I'm gonna try to get a picture of it. But the bottom piece just doesn't tuck up underneath like Petri's and his other wing do.

    I just did some more research and it looks like Bentley has angel wing?... Looks like most people suggest wrapping it if it is caught early enough? They are 7 weeks old
