    My duck has been limping for quite a while now, i have gotten it from my uncle since i had chickens i could take care of it, i asked him why it's limping and he didn't know. His neighbors gave it to him so it was limping before. Recently i have noticed that she is in alot of pain so i decided to ask the BYC forums because you guys have helped me with all my chicken problems.

    Here are some pics:

    Have you checked the bottom of his foot for bumblefoot? That would be my first thought.

    Hi - Please help. I have a duck that is limping. I have taken her to the vet twice. She has gotten two shots of antibiotic. Also one week of oral meds. She is still limping after three weeks. There is a bump under the middle of the center toe like the photo you posted. I do not see a splinter. Is the above photo bumblefoot? I keep two ducks. The other is fine. I have fine pine shavings and clean the shavings twice a day to keep it odorless. The foxes are relentless. Thank you. Joyce
