    Hey, found one of my ducks four days ago with his legs sprawled out behind him and doesn't seem to have any feeling or movement in his legs. I've been giving him water with some niacin in it as I know a niacin deficiency can cause leg problems, but I think he may have actually gotten into the wild foxgloves on the property. Recently he has been able to scoot around the yard using his beak and wings. Also, his poop is a mint green color. If he indeed got into the foxglove, what would the symptoms be, and what are treatment options? Also posted under "emergencies".
