Has anyone seen a runner ducks neck look like this before?

They seem absolutely fine otherwise. Eating well and bright and everything

Not seen that before. Is his neck straightening out at all when he eats or drinks? Have you picked him up and gently felt it?

If it’s dislocated in any way it’ll be hurting like crazy. Like all prey animals, ducks are very strongly wired not to show pain, even when in great pain, as to do so makes them and their group a target for predators.
