    my ducks are about a month old and one of them has her pointy wing feather tube things coming in and they are rubbing parts of her skin raw. She bleeds sometimes and it looks painful. Should I wrap her in gauze with neosporin? Would that be helpful? What else should I do for her? Thanks!

    Poor ducky [​IMG] That sounds like a good idea. Prevent infection, and those feathers will grow soft feather tips and stop scratching in time. I think that would be enough to just put neosporin on the raw places.
