    Okay, so I have my first case of bumble foot (looks to be very mild, one small spot). Treating it by soaking the feet 10 minutes each day in epsom salt, then spraying with MicrocynAH Poultry Spray for wounds, and then putting some triple antibiotic ointment on it. I tried wrapping it in gauze and taping it, but that lasted all of 5 minutes with my duck walking about in the yard (I don't have a separate crate to keep her in- yet).

    What I need are some duck booties. I have seen pictures of them, sold by Nettie, but when I found Nettie's profile, it doesn't seem she has posted in a few years. Does anyone know where I can find some of these? Or a pattern to make my own? Thanks!
