I know this is a chicken site but my friend recommended emailing you about my duck whose wobbly on her feet. Pretty much a lonely duck

Can you share some more information? Breed? Age? What are you feeding? Pictures?

She's about 4.5 weeks old. Feeding Purina duckling food added extra niacin in food n water. Waiting on brewers yeast too.

I agree that she needs another friend, ducks are flock animals. I do see the majority of pressure is being applied onto her hocks, could you get us a video of her walking? Most Ducks feeds only contain around 55mg per kilo of niacin, Pekins require around 70mg of niacin per kilo, that said, a niacin supplement should be added to their diet from day one. I would probably start the treatment in the thread I linked.
