    I'm wondering if something is wrong with my 2 4 week? old girls. They will walk around for a few min. then lay down they lay down alot. They eat drink poop and play in the water fine. They are eating waterfowl starter. I'm worried if the have week legs. They walked around the living room tonight walked about 12inches than laid down. They aren't falling down. Are they just lazy?
    Thanks

    Are they ducks? Maybe supplement them with some niacin or brewers yeast and switch them to grower food. I think they need less protein by 4 weeks.
