    Okay so the other day, I noticed that my runner duck had something on her bill, and when I looked closer, I realized that it looked like a cut. It's not deep at all and it doesn't seem like it bothers her at all when I touch it (but then again I am not sure what she would do if it did bother her). Is this going to permanently going to be there? Should I not worry about it since she doesn't seem to be effected by it?[​IMG]

    I would dab a tiny bit of saline solution or Vetericyn on it two or three times a day just to prevent infection - minor bill injuries seem to usually heal up pretty well - I think trying to clean it regularly at first can help the process.
