    I have two indian runner ducklings and one of them has a no fur on the back of it's neck and it looks red and sore. I have never seen the other duckling pecking it but assume thats what has happened. What should I do? I don't want to separate them but also dont want it to get worse. Any ideas please? Thank you!

    Any chance you could post a photo?

    I vaguely recall my ducklings looking a bit bare at the back of their necks when feathers were starting to come in, but don't remember seeing any redness at all.
