    We have a duck that has a foot that has something wrong with it...it looks almost shriveled up (kinda dead). The duck is still getting around but is only walking on one foot right now.

    Check the duck for an abscess. This is called bumblefoot and if you search the site for the term it will bring back many threads that discuss diagnosis and treatment.

    Good luck and hope your duck gets better.
