    I'm concerned. This is my Swedish drakes bill. He never got in a fight, my female is doing fine. Is this a problem? Should I be doing something for this? It started as small peeling, when he was young, there's no blood or apparent eating problem.

    Looks like the bill on top is peeling off and there is a new one underneath

    I have seen other members post about this with their ducks so it must not be uncommon. Put some ACV into their drinking water it's a good tonic. I haven't seen this with my Muscovy's but hopefully someone who has had this with their ducks will comment. I use 1 Tab of ACV to 1 gal of water.
