    I'm a relative newbie to ducks, I've had chickens for many years but the flock of ducks for only about 1 year. Recently one of my female duck (a 300 if that matters), started limping. Today I was able to catch her and while the foot is quite obviously swollen I didn't see anything else obvious. I'm thinking it might be bumble foot, though when I had her in hand I didn't know what to look for so I'm not sure. What I do know is that there we no obvious cuts or damage to the foot. She has been eating good, swimming with the other ducks and hopping around. It's actuallyrather amazing how normal she has been acting given her foot. Let me know what you think she might have.

    Thanks,
    Rob

    Well after doing some reading, and cleaning her up good it is definitely bumblefoot. Treatment is underway with some cleaning and bandaging for the moment. We'll see how she does.
