I don't know much about muscovies, maybe its just in a clumsy stage?
Your duckling is adorable though!

Totally forgot I posted this. It turns out to be b3 deficiency, iv given the duckling b complex and is doing a bit better. I though I was giving enough brewers yeast but apparently it wasnt.

Hey, is your duckling gasping for air? Have they been swimming a lot? What kind of brooder do you have?

It's eating and drinking fine, but it's walking like its drunk and having a hard time staying sternal when laying down.

A video in clear lighting of the duckling moving around would be great.

For wobbly/weak ducklings, you can drip a few drops of a poultry vitamin along their bill a few times a day, being careful not to aspirate the duckling. In addition, you can offer mashed scrambled egg's or a soupy feed. Ensuring the duckling is getting enough feed, and water is vital, as well as making sure the duckling is kept adequately warm.
