Swollen foot on duckling

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We've noticed yesterday that one of our call duckling's foot is swollen. We thought it could be bumblefoot, but it doesn't exactly look like it.
It did get out of the pen, through a little hole, and That was about two days ago so it could have injured itself by doing that.
Does anyone know what it could be? It's not putting any pressure on its foot so it obviously hurts.
Thanks

That is not bumblefoot. If there is nothing interferring with circulation and no obvious injuries or breaks in the skin, I would suspect a sprain or even a break. Try soaking the foot in a solution with epsom salt and see if that helps reduce the swelling.
