    My oldest Drake had a habit a few months ago of sticking his head/neck under the fencing around the property and even their dog run to get stuff.. the hens do it but they are more petite.. anyhow, he eventually left the area injured which we treated but the feathers have never grown back.. [​IMG] now it's all healed but caruncling has taken over... he seems perfectly fine.. i guess this will be more of an appearance thing?Anyone else have this happen? is there anything more i could do?

    Nothing to do, I have had this happen on 2 of my drakes. I guess it's just natural.
