Our two year old Khaki Cambell drake has had a crippled right leg for about five months, and the cause of lameness is unknown.He has little to no movement in that leg since the crippling. We have tried antibiotics and other medicines to cure his lameness, and they have not worked. This week, we have noticed a tumor-like bump form on his middle toe on his unable foot with little finger-like growths sprouting from it. It is not bumblefoot, and we are concerned for something bigger. Could it be a tumor?

It could be can you post a pic? sounds like he may need medical attention is a vet feasible? Have you tried any type of niacin to help with lameness. When waterfowl are newly hatched I know adding Brewers yeast to their feed or Plain niacin to their drinking water can help with lameness it would be a pretty inexpensive way to try and help him. But the growth sounds like something else entirely.
