    We have a 6-8 week old pekin mix that seems to be very unsteady on its feet. It swims fine, but when it is walking around, it is a bit wobbly. Is this normal?

    What is your duck eating feed wise?
    If you are feeding medicated feed, switch to non medicated right away. Also, chicken feed doesn't have enough niacin for waterfowl, so you can sprinkle brewer's yeast on the feed or give 2 or 3 drops poly Vi Sol twice a day for a week and see if that helps. It sounds like a feed or nutrition problem.
    Keep us posted!
