hello all,
One of my ducks has had a soft/squishy lump on her bill for the past month! I have no idea where it came from or how, and was hoping you fine folks might be able to shed some light onto the matter.
I have attached a few images of said bump. Luckily it doesn’t seem to bother her much, but I’m becoming concerned as it hasn’t resolved on its own.
Thank you all so much!

In cases similar to yours, people has applied antibiotic ointment on the spot, which was thought to be some sort of bruise. I recommend Vetericyn or Theracyn as those are what I have used in the past on wounds on my birds (both chickens and ducks) and are safe for poultry. Before I found those I used regular neosporin for humans and it worked ok.
