    I've had my duck for a little over a year and last Saturday I went out to feed her and I noticed she couldn't stand. So I've read all the advice on this site so far and I belive it's a lack of niacin in her diet.she's starting to try and stand now but she's super wobbly, I guess my question is will she ever come out of it? What else can I do for her?

    Please post on the "Duck thread," as soon as possible. If it is niacin deficiency - maybe she needs a higher dose. I am assuming you are using something like brewer's yeast.
    The duck folks would know best.
