    My 7-8 week khaki cample duck. Her neck is acting weird, it's like her neck is retracting. Her back feathers are also ruffled all the way down her back and she seems to have problems standing.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. I would suggest re-posting your question in the "Ducks" forum for expert advice, but you could try adding vitamin supplements / electrolytes (or even honey) to their drinking water in the meantime.

    Good luck

    Please post on the "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread in full detail, photos can also be of help. Ducklings are subject to niacin deficiencies - you can also post on the "Duck thread," and see if that is what your duckling may have. I think they add a bit of brewers yeast to their food to alleviate that.
