@Dean321    I am wondering if one of the other ducks is doing some nibbling. You may have to spend some extra time just observing them to see if that maybe what is going on. Maybe take them outside on nice warm days, not sure if your having nice warm days right now were in fall so it is pretty cool, but maybe some extra stimulation where they can run out a bit of energy might help if someone is nibbling. Other than that I haven't a clue. I do know goslings and ducklings will nibble on each other at times and if bored.

 Western N.C ~ 17 chickens= EE's, Game, variety of bantams,1Light Brahma, 2 Black Australorps . 5 Muscovy ducks, 8 Indian Runners and 2 Buff Orpington Ducks, 1 Embden gander,1 Toulouse goose , 3 mini Dachshunds, 2 mixed breed, pond goldfish,  and a wonderful Husband who makes it all possible..

Nah they don't nibble each other and also its my older duckling then the others , also the spot ( without hair) is at the same place and is bigger than before the last 5 - 6 days.. Do I need antibiotics for this duckling ?

 

Temperature in my area is 25 - 29 degree Centigrade

Your temps are in the 80's that is great weather for getting your ducklings outside for some exercise if it is safe for them to be outside and you can stay with them. 

 

@Dean321   I'm going to see if I can  someone else who hatches alot of ducklings to look at your pics and see what they think..

 

@Lacrystol    hatches lots of ducklings and maybe has seen this before..

We're in fall  and we have had temps down into the 20's so far highs in the 40- 50 in winter it can get as cold as teens and lower on occasion with highs in 20-30's you'll have to convert I have it on my computer but always have to look it up. Fall is Sept 21 till Dec 21 then Winter starts till March 21 then we're back into spring. 

 

I see you have temp extremes -2= 28 and 45= [113 ] that is hot.
