There is something wrong with my pekin duck

For the past few days, one of my beautiful four pekin ducks that I have as pets has been walking weird. She can walk sometimes but not normally, it looked like maybe she stepped on something and I didnt see anything. And I checked her bones because I thought maybe she broke something but they seemed fine. I think that maybe its arthritis. I dont know and I need help. So the past few days that she has been walking funny, and the other night I guess the other ducks pecked all the feathers from around one of her eyes, and its bad so Ive been puting an ointment to fight infection. So Ive had them separated since, and I dont know whats wrong with her.

did you get any help yet??????
I know they have to have soft bedding or they can get feet problems. I think once they are in distress others get them while they are down.
