not seem to have the stamina the others do and recently we noticed his leg is extemely shaky and then he sits.The shaking cannot be normal any ideas?

Hi there - the legs of runners are a lot longer than other ducks and with our youngsters born this year we noticed they rested a lot during the day. Give it another few days to get stronger and it should right itself.
