    Hi Guys, i had a read about bumble foot. I noticed my duck Jed limping yesterday as she walked. She had an inflamed area o her foot. Today i purchased some Epsom salts as suggested and soaked her foot in it for 30 minutes. The swollen area is warm and there appears to be no open wound on the top or the bottom of her foot, scraps, scratches or marks of any sort. I have attached a picture for input from others about where i go from here. I will obviously check it again tomorrow to see if the swelling has subsided. She is eating and waddling around still plenty will my silkies she just has the slight limp.
