One of my Pekin ducks has 4, starting a 5th, of theses sores/growth on her beak. She probably 2-3 months old, very healthy looking and acting. It’s firm with a little give when I press on it. It’s very textured. It doesn’t appear to hurt when I press it. The other 2 Pekins have nothing and are also healthy looking and acting also. She also hangs out with two chickens of the same age. I give them fresh water once, twice a day. Also I’m in Louisiana.
Anyone know what this is??

That looks very strange and I don't like the looks of that red ring around it. Inflamation process of some kind? Could something might be imbedded in there? IDK but hopefully @casportpony will have some ideas.

Okay here is one thing you can do for now put 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar into a gallon of water (sole drinking water for now). When my goose punctured his bill I did this an it helped to heal it. ACV can kill some bacteria.
