Sick Duck  I have a Khaki Campbell duck that is very sick and has been going on for almost a month. I have tried giving her activated charcoal in her water but to no avail, I have also been giving her some wheatgrass powder in her water. We gave Ivermectin to our whole flock a few months ago. She only eats when I force and then barely. She is still drinking and when I let them free-range she will eat a few leaves. She is losing weight quickly and can be quite “Tipsy” or unstable on her feet, although she does not seem to have too much trouble walking.  We have one other duck, a Pekin, that is showing no signs of sickness. We are going on vacation for a week leaving Saturday and our neighbors will take care of our flock while we are gone and they are unable to administer
