PLEASE HELP Duckling bleeding from wing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I checked on our ducklings who are almost a month old and noticed bloody bedding. And found one to be bleeding from the tip of a wing feather. It was a bit difficult to get a good picture.


I dont know what to do. Please help

It could be a blood feather, and if you pull the feather out, it may be fine. I have no experience with ducks, but chickens with feathered legs occasionally have this problem.

They are just under a month old and going from fluffy down to their big bird feathers. When they have that keratin coating still on are they called pin or blood feathers? The bleeding stopped so fingers crossed it will be fine.
