The Duck Feet Thread

post #1 of 62
Thread Starter 

I have a crazy idea - let's have everyone share their duck feet!  There seems to be such a surprising amount of foot related problems with domestic ducks, I think it would be nice to take a minute and snap a picture of our duck's feet to share with the world :D

 

So - let's see it all - the beautiful, the gross, the scabby little webbies we all love.  Let's be more aware of one of the most important parts on a ducks body, and one of the most treatable problems if caught early.  I'll go first.  I only have pictures of two of my ducks feet right now, I'm actually excited to get more.  I know, I'm a dork.  The two girls were adopted at 8 months old, and had some minor foot issues from being on hot hard packed earth all day, and no pond. Here we have Julia first, then Rosa -

 

 

 

 

 

I haven't had to do any treatments yet, they are already doing much better after moving to cool grass and a pond. 

 

Now it's your turn.  Turn your ducks over and snap a pic for us.  Let's see what we can find!

Ha! @Ameraucanas I wouldn't say these are cute duck feet, maybe the tops are cuter than the bottoms to me?

 

@Miss Lydia - Then let's see some duck feet!  You have muscovies, right?  I've always wondered how much bigger their claws are.

Well, I have to show off my Opie's striped feet.  I'll try to get a pic tonight of what they look like now.  I can still see the stripes now (as long as they aren't too muddy!) but they have faded quite a bit.

Those are some nice little webbies!  Pretty healthy feet for 4 years old, I'm impressed.  It is interesting to see the claw difference between the two breeds too.  Those are some talons! And I love how just one nail is dark.  :love

I love toe stripes!  They are the best!
