So my ducks were free range today happily enjoying when I noticed blood coming from my Brahms toe, I picked him up and checked it only to see he has no nail and it’s bleeding everywhere. I’ve tried paper roll and towel to stop the bleeding, even put him in water and it’s not worked. Now he’s just running round with the others in the mud. Should I leave it? I have inadine strips/iodine strips, some mepore dressings, micropore tape etc would they be of any use? Or should I just leave it to fix itself and keep an eye on it for any infection? Thank you all!!

It could get infected, so i suggest keeping him seperated from the others, especially drakes, best of luck!
